On Friday, May 14 the Perry County Board of Developmental Disabilities dedicated their new office building on Senior Drive in New Lexington. It is a beautiful new facility that will allow all the staff to work from one location rather than several different ones. The building is well designed to meet their needs. Superintendent David Couch and his staff hosted a great ceremony and ribbon cutting to officially open the building.
As the former superintendent and Perry county resident I had the great honor of having the building named for me. I loved the 12 years I spent working in the community with so many great families and individuals. I was blessed with a dedicated hard working staff and the support of the county commissioners and other county agencies.
Since my departure 15 years ago the board has to continued to innovate and improve services for persons with developmental disabilities. Citizens of the county should be proud to be able to have such a tremendous group of people providing supports to their family, friends and neighbors. Thanks again to PCDD for this great honor.
