Alec’s dream of wrestling event promotion became a reality! He recently worked a local wrestling event and met a former WWE wrestler, Nick Dinsmore, who is known to fans as “Eugene,” a “special” wrestler with savant skills.

It’s been an honor to work through our program with Alec and help him not only find meaningful employment – but to make his dream job become a reality!
