The Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind is a nonprofit organization that has been providing opportunity and assistance to individuals affected by blindness in North Texas for the past 83 years. We believe that with knowledge, training and motivation, people affected by blindness can succeed and thrive in any workplace, live productive and meaningful lives, and be important contributors to their communities.
Employee of the Month:
Congratulations to our May Employee of the Month, Alexander Pina. Alex has been a valued team player since 2012. He is currently responsible for the day-to-day operations of our Beacon Low Vision Store. During his time here, Alex has advanced from an Assistive Technology Lab Assistant to Keyboarding Instructor in the lab. He also assists other departments within the Lighthouse as needed. Alex lost most of his vision as a young child due to an asthma-induced stroke, but this hasn’t kept him from working hard. His supervisor, Terry McManus says, “Alex is the perfect example of a dedicated and loyal employee. Whenever the Lighthouse has asked him to grow and take on more responsibility, he has always accepted the challenge.”
Alex approaches his work here at the Lighthouse with an attitude of positivity and versatility: “I love what I get to do with the Dallas Lighthouse staff and clients, and want to do even more” Alex states.
Congratulations, Alex on being our Employee of the Month for May!
