Brad Newman/Yavapai Exception Industries
Nominated by Jon Ballard
Brad Newman has played an astronomical part in my life.
After receiving an employment opportunity to work for Yavapai Exceptional Industries out of high school in 1999 through NACOG, I was able to witness Brad Newman over the years, being a hero.
With his constant enthusiastic attitude to the function of YEI and the mission statement (rendering a person with disabilities to become as independent as their condition will allow) Brad has been a hero in this over his 40-something years of service here at YEI. He was he guiding light to two grand group homes for independence and on a mission for two more in Prescott Valley. He expanded the mission as our community grew into both Prescott Valley and Prescott Regional Airport. Our members we serve come daily to have a productive filled life with quality and excellence in what they do. With Brad Newman’s guiding light over the years this has been possible.
