Meet Mark

Mark Johnson of Sodexo

“I am really impressed by Mark’s dedication and doing what’s right for the patients,” said Matthew of Sodexo. He hired Mark through Easterseals HIRE, a job placement program for adults with disabilities. Matthew oversees the food services program at St. Vincent Hospital. His team is responsible for anything related to food at the Little Rock hospital such as delivering food trays, developing nutritious meals and catering.

Mark loves making the patients smile as he delivers their food every day. "I love my job and seeing patients get better," said Mark. He previously attended our Center for Training & Wellness where he was class president and first learned about our HIRE program. Easterseals helped Mark achieve his dream of obtaining a job. The HIRE program provides job training and on-going job counseling for adults with special needs and helps them find jobs with local companies. Besides being impressed with Mark’s dedication to the patients, Matthew says, “Mark is a spirit champion whose positivity catches on with other employees.” The nurses of the Surgical Stepdown Unit recently recognized Mark with the STAR award for his great attitude. A big round of applause to Mark for excelling at his job!
