Jesse Smith, Board President, Sight-Loss Support Group of Central PA, Inc.
A self-employed structural engineer and leadership Centre County alumnus, Jesse joined the Sight-Loss Support Group board in 1997 when the organization needed help with strategic planning. Now celebrating its 30th anniversary, SLSG is experiencing growing need for its services as babyboomers reach the age when their vision naturally begins to deteriorate, he says. To meet that need, the organization's leadership is in the process of restructuring the services SLSG provides and the technology used to deliver them.
