ROSEVILLE, Calif. -- December 20, 2013

PRIDE Industries was recently honored with an “Employer Recognition” award,
for successfully creating employment opportunities for people with
disabilities. The award was presented by the Kentucky Office of Vocational
Rehabilitation to PRIDE’s team at Bluegrass Station in Lexington, Ky. on
Thursday, November 21, 2013.

Established in 1966, PRIDE Industries is a nonprofit social enterprise
dedicated to creating jobs for people with disabilities nationwide. PRIDE and
the Kentucky Office of Vocational Rehabilitation have partnered to assist
individuals with disabilities who are chronically under-employed to become a
part of the workforce. This is accomplished by providing a comprehensive set
of support services, training, and critical job opportunities. At Bluegrass
Station, a former Army depot in Lexington, Ky., PRIDE Industries has provided
facilities services as a contractor to Lockheed Martin since 2012.

In the nomination, PRIDE was recognized for being “a company that focuses
their hiring practices on people with varying types of disabilities and works
diligently to provide an integrated setting that allows these individuals to
work with each other regardless of disability type.”

“This award is for all people with disabilities who just want a chance to
work,” said Ronald Doyle, PRIDE Industries’ site manager at Bluegrass Station,
Ky. “We strive to clear the path for them and their success.”
