I remember interviewing and hiring Emmanuel for ajob at the Parkersburg Post Office. He could have been hired through the Handicap Pprogram, Instead I suggested to him to go through the normal process. His attitude and work record excelled and he was selected. He was respected by all of fellow employees. At one time he was the recepient of a performance award. Emmanuel never complained and always performed in an acceptable manner. During my career I hired a lot of people Emmanuel stands out most of all. Good luck you surely deserve it.

This wonderful man cut my hair for several years before I moved from WV. My hair looked so good one of my brothers became a customer. Though he was deaf and did not speak there were many ways he communicated, his smile being the first. Best wishes, good luck and good health to a special man.

I remember my mom taking me to Mr. Robinson for a haircut when I was a child. At first, I didn't quite understand how to communicate with Mr. Robinson as he used paper and pencil as his translator. Quickly, I understood how to communicate with Mr. Robinson and was very happy with my haircut. I learned a lot about respect, dignity, and professionalism. My mom would always say, now he is an honorable person. Congratulations to Mr. Robinson on a wonderful career and for being an inspiration to others, including me.

These days a man with a handicap like that might just go on disability and feel sorry for himself. I dont know the man but clearly he is not that kind of fella. Congrats Sir I tip my hat to you.
