Bryan Dooley: I am Bryan Dooley.  I am proud to say I am a graduate of the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County school system.  I am a senior at Guilford College and thinking about my next step.  Although I am younger than other board members are, I have been involved in the Winston-Salem disability community for many years.  I began my advocacy very early in Winston-Salem working alongside the Physical and Occupational Therapists within the school system.  I won several awards through my work including the Yes I Can award and the Matthew Graziadei award.  I continue my work at Guilford College and with many other groups including The Adaptables.

Ron Day: I am a graduate of Elon College with a BA Degree in Mathematics and a Graduate of UNC Greensboro with a Masters Degree in Education with a concentration in Agency Counseling.  I worked for the Department of Veterans Affairs for thirty-five years as a Vocational Rehabilitation Specialist, a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor and for the last nine years as the Vocational Rehabilitation Officer supervising approximately twenty staff members.  I am presently certified by the National Board of Certified Counselors.

Additionally, I am one of the founding members for the Kernersville Mayor’s Council for People with Disabilities which was incorporated in 1984.  I have served several terms as the Chairman and several as the Vice-Chairman.  This has provided me with the opportunity to serve as an advocate for people with disabilities.  I consider it a privilege to serve on the Board of Directors for The Adaptables.

I am married with four grown children and two grandchildren and another expected in November.
