Employment Corner

Meet Kyle. Kyle is a fun loving, outgoing, and happy guy. He likes to play basketball, hang out with his friends and family, and loves to play practical jokes on people. Kyle has many hobbies. One of his favorite things to do is go bowling. He has been a member of the Special Olympics bowling team for years. You will also find him down at Caveman Bowl participating as a member in league bowling. 

Kyle loves to get all around town by riding his bike. Rain or shine, you will see him peddling along to get where he wants to go. Kyle loves his bike for the independence it gives him. He loves to fill his time by enjoying the fabulous outdoor recreation activities we have at our fingertips here in Grant Pass. He enjoys fishing and hiking in the surrounding areas. However, Kyle never forgets to sneak in time for his secret passion…Pokémon Go. He likes to “catch” them wherever he can all over town. Speaking of secret (or not so secret) passions…Kyle LOVES Star Wars, mostly the original trilogy, among which Return of the Jedi is his all-time favorite. Kyle is saving up money and has a goal to take a trip to Disneyland to see the new Star Wars Land: Galaxy’s Edge. He says it would be “The Ultimate” to be able to hang out there…and perhaps get a glimpse of his favorite character Yoda. To quote Yoda about Kyle’s desire to go to Star Wars Land “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
