Adam Catlin is well known in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania as a Walmart greeter. He has been doing a fantastic job for the last decade.
However, Caitlin has cerebral palsy. He is afraid that he will no longer have a job after receiving news that his job description was changing. The new position will add task physically impossible for a man with cerebral palsy to do.

However, Walmart wants to keep him on the job. Caitlin has been a traditional people greeter for the past ten years. He became one after graduating high school. The role of the Walmart host has been changing since 2016. Not only do they greet incoming and outgoing customers, but have a plethora of duties. They now help customers with returns, check receipts, and help keep the front of the store clean.
