Hello! My name is Michael D. I attended the Alan Short Center for 23 years. I now attend Short Center South. I have been there 7 years this year. DDSO has given me the honor of being the MC for their awards dinner. I really enjoy working with DDSO. They work hard every day to keep their programs open in spite of the budget cuts. Thank you for helping us all to learn new things in life. A lot of people have asked me why I like DDSO. If you read this, you will know why. I really like what I do. I like all of the people here. Everyone is special. The staff and the students may have their ups and downs but that's OK. I think DDSO is the best! I'd like to make a special award and present it to DDSO to say thank you for your support!

I volunteered as an teachers assistant for the video production class at Employment Plus, a program within DDSO. I enjoyed watching the creative process that the consumers went through in creating their various videos. At the time, they didn't have enough computer systems for me to assist in helping teach what I know about video editing. I would suggest getting more computers so other volunteers could come in and assist with their personal knowledge and experience. Overall, I had a good time.

lack of funding to the the items they need to make a difference.
