How do you spell inspiration? J-A-C-K-O, as in Virginia A. Jacko, President and CEO of Miami Lighthouse For The Blind. Virginia will speak on her book, “The Blind Visionary”, which explains her journey through blindness, and how it is possible to lead a productive and full life while blind. One of only a handful of blind chief executives in our country, on her watch Miami Lighthouse has become an innovation engine, heralded globally for its leadership and management. From facilitating fully equipped mobile optometric offices traveling to schools throughout Florida, a pre-school created for blind early learners, to providing consulting service for compliant websites for many types of business, Ms. Jacko has achieved an enviable record of outstanding accomplishments.
Virginia will also speak about her recent trip to Israel; visiting institutions for the blind there, providing a unique opportunity to exchange curricula, pedagogy, and share descriptions of their respective facilities, and seeking to identify commonalities and differences in order to learn from each other.
Ms. Jacko will speak on Friday, February 8th, during the evening Shabbat service at Ahavat Olam, a Kendall synagogue located at 10755 SW 112 Street, on the grounds of Killian Pines United Methodist Church. The service begins at 7:45 p.m. Don’t miss this extraordinary and kindhearted dynamo! For further information, please call 305 412-4240 or write firstname.lastname@example.org
