2021 AHEDD Success Stories
Scott Sandrock’s life changed in 2017 when he found out he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. This was a time that was full of stress and confusion for him. Thankfully in 2018, Scott had a bone marrow transplant, and later that year he decided he was ready to get back to work!
When looking for work, Scott heard about the Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work program and he chose AHEDD as his Employment Network to support his employment journey! He was hired at Governor Mifflin School District as a Technology Support Assistant where he repairs and maintains student computers and assists the staff and students with their technology needs. Scott said AHEDD “allowed me to get my life back on track professionally and financially and I’m working at a job that really seems to fit.”
Currently, Scott is able to take advantage of several opportunities given through the school district which includes him earning his A+ Certification through CompTIA and developing a second-tier tech position for his department to allow growth and advancement!
Scott is thankful for his Employment Specialist, AHEDD and the Ticket to Work program for helping him navigate his way back to independence! We are proud of you, Scott!
