Date:6/10/2009

HARRISBURG, Pa., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- PIBH recognized 23 outstanding Pennsylvania workers and the exceptional character they demonstrate in living and coping with disabilities, particularly in the workplace.

The Nettie Mann Achievement Award Dinner, held by PIBH at the Hilton Hotel in Harrisburg last night, celebrated the winner and runners-up from across the state. Every day, however, PIBH honors the spirit and skills of Pennsylvanians with disabilities by facilitating employment opportunities for them.

Edwin Brown of McConnellsburg, PA is the winner of the PIBH Nettie Mann Achievement Award. Twenty-two other workers from around the state were honored as runners-up for the prestigious award.

The Nettie Mann Achievement Award is named for an exceptional young woman who tragically died in a 1993 car accident just weeks before being named PIBH Worker of the Year. This distinguished award is given annually to the person who most emulates Mann's enduring legacy of independence and dedication.

This award includes an all-expense paid trip to the award dinner for two, $500 cash gift and plaque. Runners-up attend the award dinner to receive a plaque and $100 cash gift. All will be profiled in the PIBH newsletter.
