“Thirty-two years is a long time, we still have a lot of work to do but when you walk down the sidewalk, you notice there are curb cuts, you notice brail on signage and you know,  you notice people with disabilities working in our community so you know we come a long way and its really, really nice to see and celebrate those victories even though we know we still have work to do,” said Shari Coatney, CEO of SKIL.
