New coordinator at Alaska Center for the Blind
September 1, 2023 | View PDF
My name is Pete McCall and I’m excited to introduce myself as the new Older Blind Coordinator at the Alaska Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired. I was born and raised in southwest Louisiana and worked over 20 years as an administrator and teacher in the New Orleans catholic school system. Six years ago, I came to Alaska to teach in one of Alaska’s villages, Kotlik. I met my wife in Anchorage and have been in Alaska ever since and now call it my home.
It is my goal to help build a close-knit, vibrant blind and low vision community at the center. To help achieve this goal, we will have support groups every second and third Wednesday of the month at the center, 3903 Taft Drive. During these meetings, we will have a guest speaker and share tips on dealing with low vision and blindness. We will also share information about assistive technologies and devices to make independent living easier and more enjoyable. It’s an honor to serve you and I hope you can make it to our support group sessions. If you have ideas of how we can better support you, please let us know.
