Subject: [Ohio-talk] Kudos to JW.

The following information is lifted from the Workforce Integration Task Force Final Report to Governor John R. Kasich. Notice that JW made sure that his involvement and leadership in the Federation got included. This is the way we should all do it. 

Be proud of the fact that you are a part of the National Federation of the Blind.

Thanks JW.
Again, kudos to the Dr.
