Arc of Steuben Chief Operations Officer Matt Mehlenbacher, of Bath, has been named the agency’s Instructor of the Quarter for the fourth quarter of 2016.
Mehlenbacher was nominated for the National Traffic Safety Institute (NTSI) and Strategies for Crisis Intervention and Prevention (SCIP) courses he teaches.
“I had NTSI with Matt and he did a very good job keeping the class entertained and involved,” Tiffany Berg said. “ A six-hour class could be very tiresome and drawn out, but did his best to keep us all involved and made sure we were all very knowledgeable about what he was teaching us. He even shared some of his own personal stories of what not to do, which lightened the day up.”
Katelyn Gavin said that Mehlenbacher is always willing to teach a SCIP refresher course whenever it’s needed.
“I have received positive feedback from new hires who say he makes the three-day SCIP course interactive and enjoyable,” Gavin said.
