Washington, D.C. - Experience Works, the nation’s largest organization serving older workers through the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), will present America’s Outstanding Oldest Worker for 2012. The honoree will speak briefly and be available for interviews. Attending dignitaries will be announced at a later date.
This award is made every September to complement National Employ Older Workers Week activities to raise awareness about older Americans’ contributions to the workforce and to inspire other older people who continue to work past traditional retirement age.
Last year’s honorees were 102-year-old Dr. Hedda Bolgar, a psychoanalyst in Los Angeles, and 101-year-old Mazerine Wingate, a postal worker in Lexington Park, Md.
Experience Works SCSEP operates in 30 states and Puerto Rico, providing community service, job training, and employment opportunities for low-income adults 55 and older. The nonprofit program is highly effective in helping older workers get back into the workforce, maintain self-sufficiency, and age with dignity. For more information, visit www.experienceworks.org.
