Everyone needs a purpose and a job. This is the mission of the Alabama RISE (reemerging ideas for successful employment) program. Created by Brock Kelley, President of Lurleen B. Wallace Community College, the program helps people with intellectual disabilities find jobs. “I felt there was a way to match these students, 70% of which are not in the workforce, with companies that needed employees,” said Kelley. And he is the right person to drive this program. He began his career as a special education teacher and before his current position, he served as a Regional Director of Workforce Development for The Alabama Community College System.
