Ray was blinded in a chemical accident on the job at age 32. Since then, he has recovered and become a fixture at Tommy Nobis Center for the past 17 years, mentoring new program participants (job trainees) and always joking with the staff.
Ray has a nice home in College Park, and commutes three hours one way to get to work in Marietta each day. We’ve offered to help Ray find a job near his home, but he says he loves working at Tommy Nobis Center. And we love Ray!
Ray is pictured here with his Tommy Nobis Center community worksite supervisor, Mary Mullaney, at the Owens & Minor warehouse in Kennesaw. Ray’s team handles medical packaging for Owens & Minor. This community employer has truly made our Tommy Nobis Center team feel like part of its family!
