Stephen Hamilton with his guide dog Sumiko.

We are pleased to welcome our newest Foundation Board Member, Stephen Alexander Hamilton to the Lighthouse community! Stephen is a United States Air Force Veteran, who lost his vision three years ago. While he was receiving Orientation and Mobility training at the VA, he heard about the Lighthouse’s involvement with the U.S. Military and wanted to learn more. All it took was a tour of the facility and volunteering for him to be invested in the Lighthouse’s mission. Stephen is looking forward to representing the blindness community on the Foundation Board with his new guide dog Sumiko.
