December 12, 2012, 2012 – Cincinnati, OH – Tammy Dearinger, Manager of Employment Services at Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired - a not-for-profit organization in North College Hill - was chosen by the Southwest Ohio Rehabilitation Association (SWORA) to receive the Bernard S. Rosenthal Rehabilitation Manager of the Year award for 2012. Tammy began her career at Clovernook Center in 1995 and has worked her way up through several positions before becoming the manager of Clovernook Center’s employment services, which include in-house work adjustment, community job development and job coaching. Tammy has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Cincinnati. In her role at Clovernook Center, Tammy’s leadership has led to an increase in the hourly wages of work adjustment employees in the contract packaging department, and has implemented strategies to ensure more work and increased productivity for individuals with disabilities.
