From the Field
The folks in El Paso started off the month
of March with a workshop for employers
entitled "A Different Approach for Economic
Gains." The private Industry Council funded
the workshop which was jointly sponsored by
PIC, TRC and the local subchapter of the
Texas Rehabilitation Association. Peter
Davids, IBM's Regional Personnel Director
from Denver, Colorado, was the keynote
speaker. Davids is well known for his efforts
in hiring disabled persons.
Several agencies made presentations
regarding their services, including the El Paso
Center of the Deaf, State Commission for the
Blind, El Paso Mental Health/Mental Retarda-
tion, TRC and IMPART. TRC Supervisor Bob
Brown served as moderator of the day long
session and program chairperson.
Three members of the Region III staff
were the special guests at a recent luncheon
hosted by the staffs of the Beaumont Calder
and Beaumont Field Offices. The luncheon,
held in conjunction with a Feasibility Training
Workshop, was the Beaumont staff's way of
saying, "We're happy to be in Region III and
looking forward to working with our Regional
Office staff in the future." The guests of
honor were Training Officer Dwight Lindsley,
Program Officer Les Doleshal and Administra-
tive Officer Jim Wilson. The Beaumont/Port
Arthur/Orange area became a part of Region
III when Region VII was dismantled at the end
of last year.
George Andreatos is in high spirits these
days since the Harlingen Vocational Evaluation
Center is still in operation. The recent
reduction in funds forced TRC to withdraw
funding for the center. However, the
Tropical Texas Center, a Harlingen based
Mental Health/Mental Retardation service
agency, decided to sponsor and fund the
program. TRC agreed to transfer the
evaluation equipment needed to keep the
program running. To get in touch with
George, write: Harlingen Vocational Evalua-
tion Center, 300 Camellia St., Harlingen,
Texas 78550; or, call (512) 423-8094.

GENERAL CAMPAIGN CHAIRMAN
The United Way presented this merit award to
TRC's Region VI for its outstanding participa-
tion in this year's fund drive. Region VI staff
members increased their pledges over last
year by 32 percent and donated 25 percent
more money. Congratulations!
The Beaumont Calder Field Office staff is
proud of their OP-1 Operator, Charlotte Hill,
for her part in securing a special honor for a
special lady. Charlotte nominated Sandy Bond
Licht, a professional gospel singer/songwriter,
for the "Community Handicapped Professional
Woman of the Year" award. The Pilot Club
of Beaumont, a charter club of Pilot Inter-
national, selected Sandy for the award. Now,
Sandy will compete for the District Award in
April. Charlotte was an invited guest when
the Beaumont City Council presented Sandy
with a proclamation declaring Jan. 27, 1982,
as "Sandy Bond Licht Day."
* Happy Easter
