Steve Stunkard is starting his
15th season with the Colorado
Rockies. Steve doesn't play
for the Rockies but he feels he
is doing the next best thing
working for the Rockies as a
ticket taker. Steve is the ultimate
sports fan and loves greeting
Rockies fans at Coors Field.
How did this dream come true for an individual diagnosed at 18 months of age with a disability?
His parents were told he should be institutionalized. Steve was blessed with a wonderful involved family. Steve's parents credit DDRC services with his progress and achievements. A supportive family and DDRC/AVS made for a winning team in making Steve's dream come true.
A Colorado Rockies Job Fair was held in March,1995. Steve and his AVS Employment Consultant, Donna Nash took him to investigate possible job opportunities. That was the beginning of Steve's dream job. On Steve's tenth anniversary with the Rockies, he was recognized for his ten years of service and his great attendance with a bat signed by all the Rockies players. "We are thrilled to have Steve as part of the Rockies organization," said his supervisor.
