Success Story

The Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program is an innovative program that provides transitioning service members with professional training and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. Recently, Sergeant Peter Brady graduated from the Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program. Brady began his employment at the Kansas Department of Labor on August 13 as director of the Industrial Safety and Health (ISH) division. “The Hiring Our Heroes Program is vital to ensure each and every person who honorably exits the military is afforded an opportunity to put their skills to work for a civilian employer,” said Governor Colyer. “It is a terrific example of what can be accomplished when the military and business work together. I want to congratulate Sergeant Brady on his graduation and wish him luck in his future work with KDOL.”
