LYMAN—Local community members were awarded for their mentoring and employment skills during the national disability mentoring day luncheon, Oct. 25, at the Heritage Barn in Lyman.

In his opening remarks, Mountain View Mayor Scott Dellinger said “It’s great to be here representing you, the people of the Bridger Valley, and the businesses of the Bridger Valley. It makes me happy to be an elective official and have the opportunity to represent everyone in this. For you guys to be given the chance to mentor some of the youth today and show them they can be contributors to society and also contributors to themselves it’s great.”

The 2013 Spirit of the Business Leadership Network (BLN) to United Way of Southwest Wyoming was presented by emcee by Jim Hissong, Uinta County Human Service Coordinator.

United Way promotes education, health and basic needs to Wyoming citizens and envisions a world were all individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, financial stability and healthy lives.

The Mentor of the Year award was presented to the Children’s Learning Center for providing numerous mentor and work experiences for students.

“For the past 12 years, employers have been opening their doors to youth through mentoring, providing educational workshops and work experiences and providing direction in career opportunities with the important and valuable services mentors bring throughout the year. Many of you in this room deserve this recognition,” Wanda Rogers, BLN and MentorABILITY director, said.

Uinta County School District #4’s director of special services, Randon Lawrence, recognized the students and their mentors with a certificate.

Employer of the Year was awarded to James Sawyer of Peak Wireless by Dellinger. Brent Walk accepted the award in Sawyer’s absence.

Courtney Lee was named Employee of the Year for her work at the Fort Bridger State Historical Site. Lorrie Guild UCBLN Board Member presented the award and said, “Courtney’s supervisors say she has shown a remarkable progress in relating to others…she was dedicated to working and provided excellent help during her time at the Fort. We appreciate her willingness to work hard and enjoy her corporative attitude.”
