Vista Employee Honored as Employment Specialist of the Year


Vista Employment Specialist Kell Stinner was named Employment Specialist of the Year by the Lancaster Employment Coalition and The Arc Lancaster Lebanon PA. This award was given to highlight National Disability Employment Awareness Month.

Stinner has gone above and beyond in his role supporting a Vista Employment Services client in Lancaster and has demonstrated great passion in making sure that the individual is successfully progressing toward working independence. At Vista, we have a delineation between two supported employment positions: Employment Specialist, which functions as a job coach, and Career Developer, which serves as the business contact. Stinner has served both positions when needed, taking responsibility in communicating to the employer and also taking care of the client to ensure success at both of his places of employment in Lancaster County. Stinner is a constant team player, data-driven, and extremely sympathetic to the goal of supporting working independence.

“He is a highly valued member of our team and we are so excited for him,” said MaryLou Winters, Manager of Employment Services. “He is more than deserving of this recognition.”
