Insight Ambassadors have attended over 40 school and community events across our districts since the program started in September! We are so happy to have such amazing employees who are proud to represent Insight and #BridgeTheGap between company and their communities.
Our next featured ambassador is Thomas Oliver Darpino from Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey. Tom has been working with Insight for the past 18 months as a substitute teacher, paraprofessional, clerical worker, or any other job that’s available! In our interactions with Tom, he never fails to have a positive attitude and is always one of the first ambassadors to accept an assignment, no matter how far away from his home district it may be. We are lucky to have Tom in the program, and we asked him a few questions about his experience working with Insight.
