TSBVI at sunset

Dr. Rita Livingston writes:

Mrs. Eddie Langdon, 103, passed away on January 3, 2017. She was born
January 18, 1913. Mrs. Langdon taught children who were blind and visually
impaired for many years. She moved to the TSBVI campus with her students
when the school was integrated in the mid 1960’s. An extraordinary
teacher, she also served as elementary principal for several years. She
supervised many pre-service teachers, a number of whom were or are leaders
in the field today. Always a strong advocate for children, many of her
students remained in contact with her years after they left the school and
after she moved to Cincinnati to be closer to her family. Her legacy lives
on through the lives she touched.
