We are thrilled he has accepted the position as President and CEO. The Board of Trustees looks forward to having a long, enjoyable, and productive relationship with George,” states Jude.

“Together we will increase the number of diverse and meaningful employment opportunities, and empower individuals who are blind, DeafBlind, and blind with other disabilities to lead productive and fulfilling lives. I look forward to the Lighthouse building stronger connections with the communities in which we operate. The future of The Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc. is exciting and bright!” says George.
