About Flo Curtis

Flo Curtis was one of the founding Moms of learning disabilities, at its dawn many years ago. She courageously devoted the majority of her life to understanding, advocating, and legislating for individuals with learning disabilities. She was the very first honored and awarded recipient of the National LDA's Voulnteer of the year award. She worked endlessly to secure the LDA of Michigan as a productive and vibrant organization. Flo was quite content working behind the sences making sure everyone and everything was cared for. One of the key activities each year was a conference held at the Kellogg Center on the campus of Michigan State University. The MSU fifth year Special Education interns were vital to the success of that conference. The students volunteered to cover all aspects of the day, from welcoming participants to facilitating sessions. Flo valued the young teachers and their talents offered to students in special education programs across the state of Michigan. She valued education, as a former Special Education Teacher herself, and always supported continued education. in this sense, her endowment will continue to help generations of educators working in the field. Although humble and demure, Flo is no less than one of our greatest contributors to the Learning Disabilities Association of America. She was a Hero, and will be eternally missed.
