Karla Horrell graduated from the University of Southern Indiana with a Management degree and two minors, Finance and Computer Science. Also, she has received a Certificate in Management in Rehabilitation from the University of Illinois.
Karla came to the Evansville Association for the Blind (EAB) in April 1978. She heard of the position from her sister who was the Rehabilitation teacher at the time. Since then, Karla has worked in various positions, such as Accountant, Controller, Director of Rehabilitation, and today has succeeded to Executive Director.
The Evansville Association for the Blind has been helping disabled and disadvantaged persons for over 90 years. The EAB helps these people live and work in the community. Karla feels privileged to have been able to be a part of the growth of a company that contributes so much back to the community.
“My main hope is to become financially stable in order to begin to grow in our employment offerings, as well as other services and activities we could offer for the blind, visually impaired population. Currently, we are so focused on remaining in existence there has been little time for growth where it counts for those we serve. They are our top priority.”
