William “Billy” Price, Assistant Dining Room Supervisor, was recently awarded the honor of “Supervisor of the Year” by Crossroads Community, Inc. for his outstanding work with a Crossroads Community client who worked for WC Dining Services.

Matt Dewey, Vocational Program Coordinator for Crossroads Community, Inc., who presented Billy with the award and plaque, was impressed with the level of professionalism and compassion Billy treated this employee with. “Throughout a couple of years, Billy has been a great support and mentor for this individual in working towards his personal goals,” Dewey stated. “The employee managed to move from part-time to full-time duties, but this achievement was not easy. Motivation did not come easy for this client. Billy often took it upon himself to provide coaching and encouragement to him.”

Price, the recipient of the award, was humble. “I just tried to understand his particular developmental disabilities, and tried to keep him on the right track,” Price said. “He had a social disability, so he needed to be helped with certain social skills, so I took the time and worked with him a bit – honestly I just treated him like a human being. I really appreciate the recognition.”

Crossroads Community is a nonprofit organization providing mental health rehabilitation and case management services to residents of five counties on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. “Each year, our Vocational team works closely with dozens of employers through the mid-shore region,” Dewey said. “Washington College and William Price have modeled ideal characteristics as a supportive employer for the clients we serve.”
