The Achievement Center – Easterseals was established in 1961. The Center is a cooperative community effort among industry, Easterseals Alabama, state and local education systems, Vocational Rehabilitation Services, Alabama Career Center, SUSCC’s Adult Education Program, and the Veterans Administration. This cooperative effort has minimized the duplication of services and maximized the quality and quantity of services delivered to those benefiting from our assistance.
The Center is also in partnership with local area universities whereby students may fulfill practicum and internship requirements in the rehabilitation field by serving in a number of roles at the Center. The Achievement Center – Easteseals today operates a staff of 30 employees under the direction of Star Wray, Executive Director.
Ms. Wray also reports to a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of 14 individuals who represent all counties served. Our Board members offer a wide cross-section of experiences and backgrounds from both public and private business sectors, education, law, finance, medical and community relations.
