Center hosts mask design contest

The J.D. McCarty Center recently hosted a mask design contest among employees. The winning design is now featured on cloth masks that have been given to each employee.
Victoria Mittasch, a direct-care specialist, won the design contest with a puzzle-piece theme.
Mittasch said her love for art motivated her to enter the contest. Whenever she has downtime at work or at home, she loves to doodle or draw.
She said her inspiration for the theme is because “I was inspired by both the ribbon for autism and the idea that all of us here at JDMC are a piece to each one of these kids’ puzzle and, as a team, we fit together.”
Mittasch has worked at the center for almost a year and said what she enjoys most about her job is "knowing that everyday that I am here working with the kids I know that I am helping them become the best versions of themselves. And, as the days go on, I can see all the effort that everyone puts in paying off by seeing the growth in each kid here.”
