42- CAPEAZETTE, Fdaay,Ma, o-:J-e5,To6 Student raises funds for KSI Courtney Woolridge, a 17-year-old junior at Mil- ford High School, is very involved with school activ- ities and community service. In addition to dedicat- ing time to various community projects, she recently decided to make a financial effect as well. Woolridge was motivated,through her involve- ment with Job's Daughters, to raise funds for an agency in her community that touches her heart. Kent-Sussex Industries Inc. is the organization Woolridge chose as the benefactor of her fundraising efforts. KSI is a comprehensive vocational rehabilitation organization service Kent and Sussex Counties by providing employment opportunities to Delawareans with disabilities. Woolridge was personally intro- duced to KSI when she attended its open house in 2001. Though she had some understanding of KSI's mis- sion, it was that tour that left a lasting impression. She saw first hand how KSI touches hundreds of lives in a positive manner, and she wanted to help too. "I am so impressed with the people at KSI," Wool- ridge said. "I wanted to do something to help. 1 saw that, whether they are mentally or physically chal- lenged, they are still people just like everyone else. I think KSl is unique and a really important agency because they are helping people to be employed and they do it with a great deal of respect for the individ- uality of each person. People with disabilities can do the same jobs other people do - they just need extra help. I think it's really cool that KSI is there to pro- vide the help they need and I'm really happy to be able to help in my own small way." KSI provides quality employment opportunities to individuals with disabilities by maximizing their abilities. Touring KSI is a perfect way to observe these abilities at work and how KSI impacts the community. For a tour of KSI, call Alicia Hollis at 422-4014, Ext. 3015.
