Alumni Profiles

“I can’t complain, as I like my life.  I have learned that I can choose whether my glass is half full or half empty.”

After graduating from Maplebrook, Michael Hayes went onto study at the New York Institute of Technology in their vocational independence program. After three years at NYIT, Hayes began working at the Burke Rehabilitation Center in White Plains as a clerk in their Medical Records department.

Today, Mr. Hayes continues to live in New York and enjoys being a part of his large family, including three sisters and an older brother; he travels to Clearwater, FL as often as he can to visit his brother’s family.
