During the Disability:IN National Conference held in Las Vegas, Nevada during the Summer of 2018, Denson Ferrell participated in the Rising Leadership Academy. The Academy takes place at the Disability:IN Conference and provides two days of pre-conference skills building, leadership development and networking activities in addition to the full conference sessions. Participants have the opportunity to meet and interact with potential employers in their field of study or area of interest in a professional setting through interactive development workshops, facilitated networking and matchmaking sessions, resume-building activities and more. During the summit, these rising leaders build skills for the private employment sectors and have the opportunity to interview and  secure employment with businesses ready to identify and hire talented leaders with disabilities. Denson. Lockheed Martin met with Denson and ultimately hired him to be a System Integration Analyst! Congratulations Denson!
