Tuesday, October 17, 2017

EXETER, Pa. – Pride Mobility Products and Quantum Rehab offered about 20 students with disabilities the opportunity to be mentored by career professionals in various fields during Disability Mentoring Day on Oct. 11. “We are privileged to have the opportunity to showcase the amazing work we do at Pride and Quantum Rehab, while educating the students, teachers and aides about the many career opportunities available to individuals with disabilities,” said Denise Truesdale, vice president of human resources. “It was a fun-filled day that allowed us to make a difference in people’s lives.” This is the eighth year Pride and Quantum have participated in the event, but it was the first year they have held it at their Duryea facility, where students were able to tour the production area and visit an expanded test lab. Students had the opportunity to learn typical job responsibilities, and the necessary knowledge and skills needed for a specific vocation. Careers in research and development, sales, technical service, and production were highlighted.
