Employee of the Month: Maria Avellaneda
Maria Avellaneda is a dedicated DLB team player that works in our Industrial Division manufacturing eyeglass cases. Maria was nominated for Employee of the Month by her supervisor, Margie Harris. Margie says, "...Maria is an excellent employee. She's a fast learner...[and] there is nothing that she won't try to do."
Maria moved to the United States 18 years ago, and began losing her sight from Glaucoma. "I began learning English and Braille at the same time," says Maria. Not only is Maria positive and productive, she enjoys the work she does at the Lighthouse. "I like everything I'm asked to do here. I'm so glad to have this opportunity."
Congratulations, Maria for being Employee of the Month for August! Pictured from left: Margie Harris (supervisor), Maria Avellaneda (Employee of the Month), and Gordon Spark (Executive Vice President)
