This year’s Honorees, George and Mozell Acey, have a long-term relationship with CVI. Following an accident in 1979, George completed training at CVI and went on to become an entrepreneur specializing in small engine repair. George’s thirty-seven years with CVI encompass a service role as a mentor/peer counselor to an adult support group “Adjusting to Vision Loss” for 30 years and serving as a board trustee for eighteen years with a guiding philosophy that, while blindness is a life-changing experience, you must move on.
George is a shining example of a self-reliant attitude as he lives CVI’s mission of empowering people with vision loss to live with independence and dignity. He credits his loving wife, Mozell, for her enduring love and encouragement throughout their life journey and his family and friends for their support of his many endeavors. We thank you, George and Mozell, for your years of service to and support of the Center for the Visually Impaired.
