This week we are shining the spotlight on Walt Frasher, our Monitoring Center (also known as "the cave") supervisor. When our agency created the ground-breaking remote monitoring technology and started up Remote Support Services, Walt was added to the cave in April 2011. He lives in Clyde with his wife Sherry, where they enjoy life with 3 children and 5 grandchildren (with #6 arriving in May). Outside of the monitoring center Walt enjoys teaching catechism at his church, target shooting, and spending time with his family.
Some of Walt's responsibilities in the monitoring center include; building the remote monitoring systems, programming software for the systems, managing the cave's information databases and supervising all of the employees working there. He says that the best part about his job is being able to help others, and working with computer, which he has always enjoyed. He also spoke about his staff, saying we have to work as a team in this field, not just one person, and that's what we have at the monitoring center.
Not only is he in charge of the supervising the most cutting-edge technology used in serving people with developmental disabilities, but he is also one of those people that would give you the shirt off his back, and we appreciate all of his hard work and dedication! He is truly a blessing to everyone he comes in contact with and has made a huge impact on Ohio's DD community. Thanks for all you do Walt!
