Life has been busy at StudioWorks and before too much time slips by we at Zoom Group would like to thank Commissioner Stephen R. Hall for visiting our program.  Mr. Hall oversees the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Department for Behavioral, Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities for the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  Now that’s a title!  Mr. Hall spent the morning visiting Zoom Group’s commercial operations at UPS and then had lunch at our studio before returning to Frankfort.  Mr. Hall is the second person on the right in the above photo.

Accompanying the Commissioner on his tour were Zoom Group’s Chairman of the Board,  Shawn Herbig,  shown here talking art with Julie and Carol.  Kudos also go out to Sallie Read, Judy Erwin, and Angela Robards for all the prep work they did to make this visit go smoothly.

There was one really nice moment that happened before Mr. Hall left us.  StudioWorks artist Sally Hardman presented the Commissioner with one of her paintings to hang in his office!  The Commissioner seemed to really enjoy Sally’s thoughtfulness and told us that his daughter is studying art at Georgia Tech University.  It was nice to know that he relates well to art.

We at Zoom Group are looking forward to working with the Commissioner and our community partners to improve the lives of people who have developmental disabilities.  Thanks also go to Eric Huggins for his photography work.  Here’s a picture I snapped of Eric and Judy Erwin during Mr. Hall’s visit with us.  I think it’s a keeper!
