Black Hills Works new bakery, BakeWorks! is open
Connie Whitley, who was one of the Outstanding Achievement Award winners at the Black Hills Works Gala in 2013 and the 2011 Artist of the Year, recently added another to her long list of accomplishments. She wrote and published a book, Finding Happiness, in which she tells her story and shares encouragement and wisdom for people with disabilities, as well as the employees, families, and others who support them. In 2014, another dream came true for Connie when she and her sweetheart Jim Nelson held a commitment ceremony at Canyon Lake Park, surrounded by family and friends.
