Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- Columbia Industries turns 50 this year.

CI trains and hires people with disabilities.

Chief Executive Officer Rich Foeppel says the current staff of nearly 100 provides a wide range of products and services not just locally but throughout the world.

To mark its 50th anniversary, CI will recognize its partners with "Fifty weeks of thanks."

"Supporters of Shop CI, where we have our thrift store. GSA, the Richland Federal Building where we've got 14 clients and three staff who take care of the whole federal building and the grounds there. Just a number of partnerships that CI enjoys."

This year CI plans to establish a scholarship program to help people with disabilities achieve their potential.
