John P. Kelly
John has enjoyed being on the Arc-Solano Board of Directors for 30 years. Known as the “idea man,” John has created multiple programs over the years: rhythmic drumming, choir, and our literacy program. He has also suggested a number of activities that the staff has implemented for our consumers’ benefit: work crews for our local professional baseball team and consumer-made products to sell, to name a few. John is also an ambassador for our chapter by helping us make connections with Arc-California and our local community, as well as volunteering with large group outings such as the County Fair.
The Arc-Solano is very fortunate to have John coordinating the Literacy Program. This program has empowered many consumers since 2010 while opening doorways for new volunteers within this service. John is truly proud of the many outcomes that our consumers have experienced through literacy!
