THIS YEARS “EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR” is ORVILLE NEMBHARD. Orville had previously worked at Bryant Avenue in the late 1990’s. Recently he returned to CBS in January 2016 as a Weekday Nightshift DSP when we first opened Buckhorn. Orville has had no call outs or lateness in the last year, a fact that is really appreciated by the afternoon/evening staff. Orville’s supervisor, Jermaine Williams, values the fact that Orville is a good role model, and as well as being extremely reliable, he is always willing to flex his time to meet the needs of the program. He comes to work with a positive attitude and encourages the individuals that he supports to be as independent as possible. Orville’s dedication and positive attitude contributes to a quality of life for the individuals who reside at Buckhorn.
