Congratulations to local business – Big Deal Tire and Wheel – recipient of the Clarence Miller Excellence in Inclusion in Employment Award at the 21st Annual Dan B. Davidson Colorado Developmental Disabilities Celebration of Inclusion!

Nominated by Marilee Boylan of the Arc of Larimer County, business owner Brandon Haines has made a priority of working with and hiring people with disabilities. At his Big Deal Tire and Wheel business at 1295 N. College Ave. in Fort Collins, Colorado, Mr. Haines offers internship opportunities to all students.  One of his first interns was a Poudre School District Alternative Cooperative Education (ACE) student, and sixteen years later, that employee continues to work for the automotive company.  Mr. Haines extends his dedication to the special needs community by working as a job coach for Poudre School District, and has done so for many years.  We applaud Big Deal Tire and Wheel for their commitment to the inclusion and success of people of all abilities.
