Nat Receives 2014 Worker of the Year Award

Nat won the 2014 Worker of the Year Award from Autism Services Association in Wellesley, MA. Here is what Dr. Joel Smith, Executive Director of ASA said about Nat:

The 2014 Worker of the Year is someone who started at ASA in 2012, and immediately applied for a job, for which he just celebrated his 2 year anniversary, at a large supermarket chain. While that job is 3 days a week, this person also enjoys volunteering his time on his days off delivering hot meals to appreciative elders in the community. That commitment just reiterates how strong his worth ethic and drive is.

This Worker of the Year is someone who brings that same commitment to his leisure activities, whether it be his love of swimming in the pool or knocking down the pins while bowling. He is well-liked by his peers, and is always willing to lend an extra hand in helping others.

So it is our honor to announce that the 2014 Worker of the Year is…Nathaniel Batchelder!

Congratulations to Nat, I am so happy and proud for him. Sounds like Nat’s days are happy and productive. This is exactly the life I want my own son to have, once he is out of the teen years, which will be shortly. Thanks Susan for attaching the photo. Nat has gotten so handsome!
