Donna Bishop 

Nominated by Patricia Schonlau

It is my pleasure to nominate Donna Bishop for Member of the month.  Donna has been a member of United Workers for the Blind of Missouri (UWB) over 17 years.  Being one of our sighted members, Donna has been very gracious in giving herself in assisting our visually impaired members in so many ways.  Donna demonstrates a positive attitude in her beliefs and truths regarding people who are visually impaired. Donna has shared with me her personal beliefs that a person who is visually impaired must possess hope, self-confidence, the knowledge that it is respectable to be blind, and the importance of developing basic skills and alternative techniques of daily living skills.  With this positive attitude, Donna successfully brings comfort and support in a caring manner to those in need of her sighted assistance.


Currently, Donna is serving  in the positions of both Corresponding Secretary and Christmas Party Chairman.  I certainly appreciate Donna’s willingness to   read our printed correspondence at our UWB monthly meetings. 


On the state level, Donna enjoys helping  at the registration table at MCB State Conventions. 


I believe Donna Bishop is an excellent candidate for member of the month recognition. Thank you for your kind consideration.
