Subject: [NFB-Talk] Congratulations to the NFB of Texas


Hello everyone. I am sharing this in the hopes that some of you may attend. When I found out a couple of weeks ago that I was nominated and chosen along with our NFB of Texas affiliate for our mentoring program, it was a pleasant surprise. The below is the information which gives the dates and times for the ceremony. Also, below my signature is the original message from Norma Crosby, our NFB of Texas President.


Thank you.



Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame: <https://ndmc.pyd.org/hall-of-fame/>  Class of 2020 Induction Ceremony - March 30th 6:30-8:30 PM ET | 3:30 - 5:30 PM PT


The Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame was established by the National Disability Mentoring Coalition (NDMC) in 2015 to carry on the legacy of disability champion and lifelong mentor, Susan Daniels, and to spotlight individuals and groups around the United States who are making a significant difference in the lives of youth and adults with disabilities through mentoring.


This year, the celebration will recognize the Class of 2020 as mentors and organizations who have supported disability justice, racial justice, and COVID-19 related issues impacting the disability community.


The event will include remarks from Dr. Manu Thakral, Partners for Youth with Disabilities Board Member, a performance by Jennifer Msumba, and special remembrances of Thomas Golden and Alec Frazier, champions of disability rights and mentors to many. More speakers will be added.


This is a free event. CART & ASL Interpreters will be provided.

Hello everyone,


This morning I am writing to share an announcement that we can all take pride in. Our affiliate's CAREER Mentoring Program has been inducted into the National Disability Mentoring Coalition and Partners for Youth with Disabilities Hall of Fame, and one of our mentors, Raul Gallegos has also received the same honor. There will be a ceremony to recognize all inductees on the evening of March 30, from 5:30 to 7:30 PM Central Time. I will share information about the ceremony as it becomes available.

In 2018, another of our mentors, Daniel Marinez, was honored in the same way, and I have no doubt that other program participants will be considered in the future. Our program has been active since 2007, and we have had the honor of mentoring some pretty great kids who have turned into pretty great adults. I expect nothing less in the years to come.

If you know of blind people between the ages of 14 and 22 who could benefit from working with a blind role model as they set and achieve their goals, please feel free to direct them to our website so they can apply as a program participant. Or, have them give us a call to discuss how to sign up. If you know a blind adult who would be a good role model for blind youth, please do the same. We are always looking for new mentors as well.

Best regards,

Norma Crosby, President
