When Gov. John Kasich put his name to paper yesterday, it was Micah Hetrick who dotted the "i."
Life stories like Hetrick’s punctuate Kasich’s new Employment First initiative — to makereal-world job placement a priority for working-age Ohioans with developmental disabilities.
Hetrick, 23, of Dublin, has Down syndrome. But after graduating from Dublin Scioto High School and Project SEARCH, a training and employment program for people with disabilities that originated in Cincinnati, he works at Sam’s Club making $8.50 an hour.
