Bill Cain, a two-year employee with Dawson County Senior Services, in September transferred from his job as a part-time Meals on Wheels driver to a full-time driver for Dawson County Transit.
Cain, a graduate of the University of North Georgia, is a retired colonel with the US Army with 26 years of service.
Dawn Pruett, director of Dawson County Senior Services, said she is excited to have Cain as a full-time employee who will continue to assist senior clients.
“Bill has so much compassion for our senior clients and always goes the extra step to ensure safety and needs for them in their homes,” she said.
Cain said he is also excited about the new position.
“From the time I was a child I have had an attachment to the elderly,” Cain said.
Cain also said he enjoys hearing the seniors’ stories about their youth and about how they grew up in a different time, and that he loves working with the senior clients and the staff at the center and definitely has a calling to be there.
