Asheboro, North Carolina, January 22, 2018
For some people, school comes easy. For Moriah, she had to work at it. Easterseals UCP stepped in and provided her with the necessary services including Community Networking, Supported Employment and Residential Supports to help her overcome a learning disability and graduate from high school.
Moriah, who is 25 years old and has Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Moderate Intellectual Disability, recently graduated from Randolph Community College with a High School Equivalency Diploma after attending the Adult Continuing Education Program for seven years.Her hard work, along with years of support from Easterseals UCP staff, certainly paid off.
“The entire team is very proud of Moriah. She worked so hard and achieved so much!” said Teresa Hughes, Greensboro Individual Community Supports Program Manager at Easterseals UCP.
Easterseals UCP hired Moriah to work as a part-time admin in the Asheboro Individual Community Supports Program office. This month, Moriah was thrilled to begin classes at the Randolph Community College Cosmetology Program to earn an Associate’s Degree.ABOUT EASTERSEALS UCPEasterseals UCP works side-by-side with adults and children who are managing disabilities and mental health challenges.
