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:
Maria Bermudez is our Employee of the Month for March. She has been a valued team player with the Dallas Lighthouse for almost a dozen years. Her current position is in our Writing Department where we manufacture millions of markers each year. She has also worked in our Vinyl Department, making eyeglass cases.
Although she lost her sight due to Retinitis Pigmentosa, Maria doesn't let that slow her down. Her supervisor, Ramon Rios says, "Any task I give her, she accomplishes...She is always willing to do whatever we need done."
Maria appreciates her time at the Dallas Lighthouse, stating, "I enjoy staying busy and getting to work with friends." Outside of the Dallas Lighthouse, Maria enjoys spending her time at home. She is the proud mother of two young children (ages 17 months and 5 years old).
Thank you, Maria for your hard work and dedication. And, congratulations on being our Employee of the Month!
