Tyrell worked at Weaver for 12 years, most recently as a crew member on the METRO sign crew team of the Community Group Employment department, before finally receiving his “dream job” at the Akron Metro Regional Transit Authority in October 2022 as a vehicle detailer.
While working at Weaver, Tyrell improved his communication skills, learned how to plan for independent employment in the community, became even more familiar with METRO and excelled in his transportation planning skills. In addition, he has worked hard to understand what he needed to do to move his career beyond Weaver.
