The pandemic gave Superior Vocations Center’s newest executive director an opportunity to make some changes, including a new name: Embark Supported Employment.
Ashby Rawstern, executive director, said the changes include enhancing employment offerings, expanding vocational rehabilitation services, bringing on a new management team, reassigning board roles, ending a program that allowed sub-minimum wage pay through piece rates and developing new partnerships to enhance service offerings.
The organization, founded in 1966, was created by a group of parents, citizens and professionals to address a need for specialized and intensive training services for people with disabilities.
It got a new start Wednesday, July 21, with a celebration and ribbon cutting at 2320 Hill Ave. in Superior.
