Thomas Hill Jr. of Pine Bluff has been named the area’s Department of Human Service Division of Services for the Blind (DSB) Consumer of the Year.

Hill almost lost his life when he was a passenger in a car accident. “It was July 5, 2001, and the doctor told my family I wouldn’t live to see July 6. They flew me by helicopter from Pine Bluff to Memphis.”

“I feel like I have a second chance,” Hill said. The car wreck caused him to have a traumatic brain injury that causes seizures. “The frontal lobe has a lot to do with your vision. I’m completely blind in my right eye and partially blind in my left eye.”
