“Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” ― Helen Keller
One of The Shoals most famous residents was Helen Keller. Blind and deaf, the Tuscumbia native devoted her life to education and improving the lives of the deaf and blind. She authored numerous books throughout her life and on September 14, 1964 (55 years ago this month) she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Johnson. In honor of this anniversary this week we take a deeper look at the life and works of Helen Keller.
Helen Keller Services has been “committed to improving the lives of individuals who are blind, visually impaired or have combined hearing and vision loss” since 1893.
