Service to Others
In December two of our Board Officers, Nona Graves and Mike Aprahamian, who to date have provided 70 years of combined service to Vision Forward, will be completing their service on our Board of Directors. Both Nona and Mike initially became involved in the organization for personal reasons and both remained actively engaged to help us carry out our mission of serving individuals impacted by vision loss. Their reputations as dynamic leaders, good listeners and forward thinkers not only led us through one of this area’s most successful mergers, but also helped set the stage for many more years of successful service to the vision loss community of Southeastern Wisconsin.
As individuals who lead by example, Nona and Mike never lost sight of our mission over the years and have purposefully mentored others to carry forward their visionary leadership. We are truly grateful for their many years of dedication and service to Vision Forward and for their enduring commitment to improving the lives of all those impacted by vision loss.
We also want to acknowledge the steadfast commitment and service of Board Members Bob Richter and Rutheia Renfro whose terms will also be ending in December.
Thank you to all of you for your leadership, time and passion. You will be missed.
