HKSB News Release
Matthew P. Sapolin
The Board of Trustees and Staff of Helen Keller Services for the Blind are truly saddened by the loss of a phenomenal individual – Matthew P. Sapolin, Commissioner of the Mayor’s Office for Disabilities. Many of us remember Matt when he was just a little boy during those years he attended Camp Helen Keller; others remember his mobility and orientation training sessions; and still others remember him as one of our biggest supporters and an incredible advocate for those with disabilities. He was funny, kind, brilliant, innovative and just wonderful to be around. We are grateful to have known him.
