Vocation celebration


December 26, 2005

Graduations are usually a springtime rite of passage. But on Thursday, 29 individuals with disabilities graduated from six vocational training programs at the Maryland State Department of Education's Division of Rehabilitation Services.

The programs are designed to equip students with the skills so that they can work in industries that include cosmetology, automotive repair, office technology in accounting and security services.

State Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick was guest speaker at the ceremony.

According to the State Department of Education, the DORS program is designed to help disabled citizens become employed, self-sufficient members of society.
