Burlington, KY, April 11, 2017
At Easterseals, we know how important it is to show gratitude to our military, so we were thrilled when the Kroger store in Burlington decided to honor veterans. A 2015 Outstanding Community Partner honoree, Kroger is no stranger to positively impacting the individuals served by Easterseals.
This time, the grocery store worked with students of Boone County High School to design a beautiful mural dedicated to veterans. Easterseals’ own Karl Williams was invited to participate in the ceremony. A US Army veteran who spent time serving in Iraq, Karl has worked with Easterseals Veteran Services for several years as a Job Developer. Often times, veterans find themselves struggling to translate their service experience into a civilian resume. This can lead to underemployment, unemployment, and a number of other challenges. Easterseals works with veterans to find a successful transition from military service to a rewarding and fulfilling civilian life.
Karl's professional network, vast experience in both the military and civilian world, and understanding and compassionate personality have made him an invaluable asset to Easterseals and the Greater Cincinnati veteran community. We are deeply grateful to Kroger and Boone County High for recognizing his service to our country. Check out the full story by the Cincinnati Enquirer here!
