NewView is excited to announce that Oklahoma native, Tulsa County Commissioner, and Tulsa Mayoral candidate, Karen Keith, will be our guest of honor at this year’s Blackout Banquet being hosted in honor of Karen’s sister, Kathy Denton. Kathy was a fierce advocate for her community, known for putting other’s needs ahead of her own, with a passion for serving Oklahomans who are blind or have low vision. She worked in the Jenks school district as a teacher’s assistant and paraprofessional for visually impaired students, where she proceeded to teach herself Braille to translate educational materials for her students. In this capacity, Kathy worked with many of NewView’s clients and employees, providing life-changing services during their developmental years. She was also an avid volunteer at NewView community events, and passionately served the veteran community. She was known to be available to students all the time, even after-hours. Kathy undoubtedly touched hundreds of lives and improved essential values like independence and confidence in the students she served. Kathy passed away in 2022 and is missed deeply by her family and community. We are greatly humbled by the opportunity to honor such an incredible person at this year’s event.
