Call Timothy Kelly a winner

I'm a bit late on this, but the honor is no less worthy of a MontCo Memo shoutout (which is far less embarrassing than when all of the servers at the restaurant your alleged friends took you to gather around your table to sing you "Happy Birthday.")

So congratulations to Timothy Kelly, recipient of the 2012 Charles A. and Elizabeth O. Gruber Memorial Scholarship Award from the Montgomery County Association for the Blind. He received $500 to put toward his goal of improving the lives of those who are visually impaired and blind.

Charles Gruber was a founder and officer of the association. Elizabeth Gruber, his wife, was an enthusiastic supporter of the organization.

The award is given out annually to "a legally blind or visually impaired resident of Montgomery County seeking to further his/her education beyond high school," according to the association. For more information on the group, which provides a range of services to the visually impaired community, call 215.661.9800.
