The Independent Living(IL)movement will sorely miss William Kennedy, who recently retired as the
Executive Director of the Center for Independent Living of North Central Florida. Under his leadership the past 14 years, his center budget tripled in size and his CIL purchased and renovated the headquarters in Gainesville for the 16 counties this center serves. It was fitting that on his last day at work he received lifetime achievement recognition by the Able Trust at their annual awards banquet. We welcome Amy Tharpe as the Interim Executive Director.
