Story 38 - Allen Jenkins Allen Jenkins

Allen Jenkins was named a 2022 Rise’ing Star at our Annual Rise Gala in October. He is pictured holding his award with Rise President and CEO Lynn Noren.

Allen Jenkins enjoys working with his hands and excels with independent work. In 2019, he began a janitorial job at Donatelle. Office workers there say his thorough work stands out above other others in keeping their spaces clean and sanitized, and that became even more important during the COVID-19 pandemic. Allen has been working hard to break out of his shell at work and is making wonderful progress in making friends.

Allen is driven, focused, and committed. He works with the same level of excellence every day without fail, even despite personal hardship when his mother recently passed away. He is an example to others as a model of resilience.
