Employee of the Month: Lyndell Morgan
Lyndell Morgan (pictured left) is our Employee of the Month for February. Lyndell works in our Industrial Division in the molding department and was nominated by his supervisor, Tony Laffin (pictured right). Lyndell was recognized because of his excellent work ethic, dedication and commitment to teamwork.
At age 32, Lyndell began struggling with the loss of his eyesight. He received some recovery through cataract surgery, but eight years later in 1990, Glaucoma and Retinitis Pigmentosa permanently eliminated most of his eyesight. Left with only slight vision in his left eye and none in his right, Lyndell didn't allow this challenge to put the brakes on his productive and purposeful life.
In 2000, Lyndell began working for the Dallas Lighthouse. Not only is Lyndell a productive and committed team member, he is living proof that when you maintain an optimistic attitude, losing your eyesight doesn't mean losing your vision. Congratulations, Lyndell!
