Phil Hatlen's Corner (Blog)

Blog posts from our board member, Phil Hatlen, and guest bloggers, addressing issues related to blind and visually-impaired children.

Phil Hatlen passed away on January 14, 2016

With the passing of Dr. Phil Hatlen, the world lost a light that shined on all blind and visually impaired children. He was a hero in the field of education to all who knew him, knew of him, worked with him, and benefited from his knowledge and friendship. He was a visionary in the field of education, especially of the blind and visually impaired students he presided over as Superintendent of Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired from 1990-2007 and as Board Member of All Blind Children of Texas from its inception in 2004 until the present. He believed, and taught this to all the staff who ever worked with him, that all blind and visually impaired persons must have the opportunity to be equal and the right to be different. Watch an interview with Phil as he retired in 2007.
