Each year, the United States Senate recognizes March 22 as National Rehabilitation Counselor Appreciation Day. Commissioner Emily Cheng and I recognize those who have chosen this profession. As a former vocational rehabilitation client and counselor, I (Commissioner Cheng) have been on both sides of your desk. We sincerely appreciate your commitment to successful employment of Oklahomans with disabilities. You enable and inspire jobseekers to reach their goals for economic independence and an improved quality of life. In Oklahoma, we continue to recognize your master’s-level rehabilitation counseling education and professional certifications as valued credentials that document your dedication to this rewarding career.
You and the administrative and professional staff on your team truly make a difference in our state.
Emily Cheng, Commission for Rehabilitation Services Chair
