Randyce Wechter, the latest nominee of the “No Limits” Mentoring Mission Award – a charitable outreach program dedicated to helping disabled people to achieve their career goals – embodies the true spirit of somebody who has steadfastly refused to give up.

At 21, Randyce married and went on to attend DePaul University. After a successful career in retail management, she settled into her passion: the theater.
