The American Foundation for the Blind, a leader in opening doors for the nearly 25 million Americans living with vision loss, recognizes two Mississippi State University leaders for their contributions in the field of vision loss. The Migel Medal – the highest honor in the blindness field – was given to Elton Moore, retired MSU professor, College of Education associate dean, and the former director of the National Research and Training Center (NRTC) on Blindness and Low Vision and Michele McDonnall, MSU research professor and current NRTC director.
“To receive the Migel Medal is the quintessential lifetime achievement award in the blindness field, and to be a part of a nationally renowned group that includes Helen Keller is truly humbling,” Moore said.
