DEED Marks 100 Years of State Services for the Blind
Friday, June 23, 2023
"It's always important to look back and take stock of where we've come from," says State Services for the Blind (SSB) Director Natasha Jerde. "Here at SSB, we're very focused on using the lessons of the past to shape a better future."
Jerde's reflection comes as DEED's State Services for the Blind Office marks its 100-year milestone. Indeed, Governor Walz proclaimed June 22 as "One Hundred Years of State Services for the Blind Day" in Minnesota – highlighting the centennial anniversary of the legislation that established a program to serve blind, DeafBlind, and visually impaired Minnesotans.
