NEWCASTLE, Okla. – Fear of losing her remaining vision once held Sonya Cochran back more than deaf-blindness, a condition many associate with noted American author, lecturer and humanitarian Hellen Keller.

Today Cochran, from Newcastle, is beginning a job search while serving as 2017 spokesperson for Deaf-Blind Awareness Week in Oklahoma.

Governor Mary Fallin issued a proclamation for the event, which will be celebrated June 25 through July 01, in conjunction with Keller’s birthday.
