The Allegany County Board of Legislators recognized Alison Dickinson this week for her work in Employment and Training. She was presented with the award by Board Chairman W. Brooke Harris and Employment and Training Director Reita Sobeck-Lynch at the Legislative Board meeting of April 26.
Dickinson, a Senior Employment and Training Counselor, has worked within the Department for 23 years, serving previously in the Department of Social Services. Her expertise includes employment assessment, job readiness training, and directed job searches. All of these skills have enabled Dickinson to help hundreds of clients achieve professional development and employment.
In addition to her work in Employment and Training, Dickinson has been an active volunteer in the community for decades. She has served as Trustee of the Belmont Library, President of the Genesee Valley Chorus, Habitat for Humanity, and is a founding member of both the Allegany Geobash Committee and Genesee Valley Outdoor Trekkers. She has travelled the country with Red Cross Disaster Services, including in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina and in New York City following the attacks of 9/11.
Sobeck-Lynch congratulated Dickinson and thanked her for her service. “(Alison) puts her heart and soul into her work every single day. We’re thankful for everything she does for her customers and coworkers, all while treating everybody with professionalism, dignity, and respect.”
