Local chef wins award for overcoming barriers in employment

David Brann, who was featured in a News-3 Do Something Good story, was awarded the Wisconsin Job Honor Award Wednesday.

The award recognizes Wisconsinites who have overcome barriers to employment.

David currently works as a prep chef at Lucille in Madison.

“It means I did a good job at my jobs,” David said about what the award meant to him.

Lucille Executive Chef Evan Dannells partners with Goodwill of South Central Wisconsin to recruit workers with disabilities. Dannells said David has improved everyone’s life at Lucille.

“Yeah I think David represents that there is a place for everyone in the workforce, and it’s all about finding the right fit for the right person,” Dannells said. “We were fortunate enough to nail it right out of the gate with David.”
