HELLO! For many of you, this is my first opportunity to reach out to you and introduce myself. My name is Jordy D. Stringer and April 1st I became the new Executive Director here at SOCIL. My primary role is to coordinate the work of our CIL serving the communities of Fairfield and Hocking counties. It is in this role that I am very pleased to be working on behalf of the consumers that we serve. I am excited for the opportunity to help bring about awareness to the needs and abilities of people with disabilities.
I am a major proponent of the Disability Rights Movement and a passionate believer in people of differing abilities living the most independent and productive lives possible.
Before coming to SOCIL, I spent the last 16 years working as, not only an Access Technology Specialist at the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ISBVI), but also as a member of the Adaptive Sports Program’s Board of Directors at the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana (RHI); and the administrator for the National Federation of the Blind of Ohio (NFBO) State Scholarship program. I am very well-prepared to break down all barriers facing persons with disabilities.
I am confident that my background in disability policy, group and individual instruction, as well as my experience advocating locally and nationally, provides the perfect foundation for work as the Executive Director of SOCIL.
I look forward to working alongside all of you to benefit those we serve. I have an open-door policy so I will look forward to hearing from many of you soon. You can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (740) 689-1494 ext (11).
