Connie Kirk Scholarship
When Connie Kirk became the first executive director of the Tommy Nobis Center, she had a toddler and was going back to work part-time to help teenagers with disabilities who needed help getting their first jobs out of high school. That was 1977, and the Center helped 81 people that year. Almost four decades later, Connie has six grandchildren and Nobis Works has provided evaluations, training and employment services to over 25,000 youth and adults with disabilities throughtout the 16 states ranging from Georgia to Alaska.
Connie’s work is visible in each person who has earned a paycheck, gained self-confidence and achieved their dreams because of the training and support they received through the organization. To honor her decades of dedicated service and ensure her legacy of supporting clients through training and education continues, we are estabishing the Connie Kirk Scholarship. By endowing a fund with $100,000, we will enable one person with a disability each year to receive training in both the behaviors and the skills needed to earn and retain a job. Assisting more people is a fitting tribute to recognize all that Connie has done for people with disabilities through Nobis Works.
