The program is collab­o­ra­tion between Ivin­son Memo­r­ial Hospi­tal, The Wyoming Depart­ment of Work­force Services Divi­sion of Voca­tional Reha­bil­i­ta­tion, Choice Adult Services and Albany County School District #1, which was founded in 2017. The most impor­tant goal of Project SEARCH at Ivin­son is for each intern to be compet­i­tively employed by the comple­tion of the program. 

Timmy’s first intern­ship expe­ri­ence was with Ivinson’s Dietary Depart­ment where the team quickly grew to appre­ci­ate Timmy’s work ethic and posi­tive atti­tude. After his intern­ship, he was offered a perma­nent part-time posi­tion as a Nutri­tional Services Assis­tant. When asked what he enjoys most about Ivin­son, Timmy said, Doing my job well.” In his current role, he has learned impor­tant lessons about team­work and know­ing when to jump in to help his co-workers. 

Timmy is a Special Olympics medal winner in cross coun­try skiing and also competes in power lift­ing and cycling. In addi­tion to Special Olympics, Timmy is involved in his church and the Fellow­ship of Chris­t­ian Athletes. He loves Laramie because he can envi­sion living here inde­pen­dently while still being connected to his family. 

Timmy is excited to continue to learn how to do things on his own, with the support of his teach­ers, family, and friends. Every day he says to himself, I can do this!” We are proud of all that Timmy has accom­plished with Project SEARCH and are lucky he is on our Ivin­son team!
