Each year, the World Services for the Blind Foundation selects a distinguished Arkansan with a personal commitment to community service to receive the prestigious Vision Award. This year, the WSB Foundation will honor Charles D. Morgan.

Blindness is no respecter of persons. It strikes without regard to race, religion, sex or nationality. In the United States, more than 25 million people age 18 and older are blind or have severe visual impairments that cause them to make adjustments in their careers and everyday living situations. The mission of World Services for the Blind (WSB) is to empower blind or visually impaired adults in the United States and around the world to achieve sustainable independence.

WSB was founded by Roy Kumpe in 1947 to serve blind or visually impaired people who needed to learn independent living skills or job training skills tailored to the special requirements of their individual visual impairments. The goal of WSB then, and today, is to empower blind or visually impaired adults to achieve sustainable independence through life skills, career training and community access. Since its birth, WSB has served more than 13,000 people from all 50 states and 58 countries.
