Seville AllenThe disability community lost a true leader when Seville Allen passed away on February 23rd after a battle with Peritoneal Cancer.

Seville was a retired federal civil servant and former Deputy Director of the Virginia Dep’t for the Blind and Vision Impaired and she was an invaluable leader of the Nat’l Federation of the Blind on the local, state, and national levels. She was also a member of the Board of Directors at ECNV and she worked as a part-time Peer Mentor here as well.

Seville worked tirelessly to make the world a better place for the blind and people with disabilities in general. We have lost a fine friend and leader, but her legacy will live on through her many achievements.
