National Disability Employment Awareness Month On Thursday's Access Utah

Cait Salinas

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month. Jump the Moon Art Studio, which offers art-making opportunities to people with disabilities, along with the Cache Employment and Training Center (CETC), is working to bring attention to the strength and diversity that persons with disabilities contribute to our communities.

On Access Utah we’ll talk with Michael Bingham from Jump the Moon; and Aubree Popock, a job developer with Cache Employment and Training Center, and Marie Holst, Employment Services Director with CETC, about providing employment and other opportunities to persons with disabilities. We'll also hear from Denise Smock, a client and employee with CETC.


Tom Williams worked as a part-time UPR announcer for a few years and joined Utah Public Radio full-time in 1996. He is a proud graduate of Uintah High School in Vernal and Utah State University (B. A. in Liberal Arts and Master of Business Administration.) He grew up in a family that regularly discussed everything from opera to religion to politics. He is interested in just about everything and loves to engage people in conversation, so you could say he has found the perfect job as host “Access Utah.” He and his wife Becky, live in Logan.
