In Memory: Deborah Hatton (1952-2018)

Dr. Deborah Hatton, beloved friend and colleague, passed away in early September. She was an active member of CEC-DVIDB, working tirelessly on our professional standards and position papers, all while training the next generation of teachers and leaders. In 2017, Dr. Hatton received the Distinguished Service Award from DVIDB, which recognizes exemplary leadership and commitment to the field of education and rehabilitation of students with visual impairments and deafblindness. In 2018, she was honored with the C. Warren Bledsoe Award, given by the Association for Education and Rehabilitation for the Blind and Visually Impaired (AER) in recognition of a noteworthy piece of literature in the field of blindness that presents new facts or concepts about blindness or offers a new perspective on a fundamental problem in blindness. In honor of her contributions to the field and our division, the Deborah D. Hatton Outstanding Dissertation of the Year Award will recognize a DVIDB member who makes a significant contribution to the field through extensive study and research in their dissertation.  Her passing is a loss to our field, but she made a lasting impact that lives on through her work, her colleagues, and her students.
