Rocky came to work for NCSS directly out of high school with no prior work experience. He had to get used to working a regularly scheduled work week, learning new equipment all while keeping up with production demands. Not only did he have to get used to the workforce, he had to do with while being legally blind. He had to figure out what worked for him and what didn't, what low vision aids he needed in order to do his job. He also entered a workforce consisting of a large generation gap. NCSS has a lot of employees that have worked here a very long time, but not many co-workers his age that he could relate to. However, both of these obstacles didn't stop him and he adjusted wonderfully. His constant strive to always do better will always help him overcome any obstacle.
