The UniqueSource Achievement Award was established in 1976 as the Nattie Mann Acheivement Award to recognize outstanding workers from around the state who demonstrate exceptional character in living and coping with disabilities, particularly in the workplace. Following the awards ceremony, which took place at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania, guests were treated to an inspiring keynote address from Master Sergeant Cedric King – who, just as he led and motivated men in combat, now leads and motivates others to see the possibilities in their own lives.
Meet Award Winner Daniel Velez Camacho. Daniel is a member of the janitorial crew for Quest Inc. that provides federal, state and private cleaning services. He is the lead person in the floor care area. “We have received many compliments on the floor care at the sites we clean and at our own facility as well,” said Hollie Manwiller of Quest, Inc. who nominated Daniel for the award. “Daniel’s input into our floor care has helped to save time and money.” Daniel says the best part of his job is everything because every day there is something different to do and it keeps it interesting.
Master Sergeant Cedric King, Keynote Speaker. Master Sergeant Cedric King entered the United States Army in 1995. During a career that took him from an infantry private to a position of leadership in the elite Rangers, King graduated from a number of distinguished Army schools. He is the recipient of the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal. King is a four-time Best Ranger Competition participant. On July 25, 2012, during his second tour in Afghanistan, King was severely injured by an improvised explosive device. The blast caused major internal injuries, permanent loss to part of his right arm and hand, and the amputation of both legs. Just 21 months after losing both legs, King completed the Boston Marathon, running on prosthetic blades. He has gone on to compete in a number of physically daunting events, including a 70.3-mile half Ironman Triathlon, the 2014 New York City Marathon and the 48.6-mile Disney Marathon series. There, he successfully completed four runs in four days – a 5k, 10k, half-marathon and full marathon.
