From Kevon’s Job Developer:
“This is my second round of working with Kevon on JD services. The first time was two years ago where I assisted him in getting employment with DHL and this time where he’ll be working with Walmart. I only have positive things to say about Kevon. He is such a dedicated and hard-working person despite his personal challenges and adversities he has had to overcome in the process. Kevon always gives his best-efforts and is always willing to learn and grow. I have watched him bloom from being very timid and quiet, to a confident professional that advocates for himself!”
