Dr Rowland - turning dreams into action

The lifetime achievements of SANCB’s Honorary President, Dr William Rowland, were recently highlighted in Plus 50 magazine.

His illustrious career’s earned him many awards, locally and as far afield as Russia and Chicago, reminding us just how fortunate we are to have Dr Rowland as our Honorary President.

He was blinded at the age of four in a shooting incident but his parents gave him all their love and support, and provided the best education they could afford.

Dr Rowland started his career as a physiotherapist and in 1966 began his association with SANCB as a public relations officer. He went on to become our national executive director for 29 years until his retirement in 2005.

At that time he was also president of the World Blind Union and CEO of the Thabo Mbeki Development Trust for Disabled People. In 2007, SANCB awarded him the prestigious RW Bowen Medal for Lifelong Meritorious Service to the Blind.

Now, well past 70, he’s still a driving force in the disability world and serves on 10 different councils, both national and international. Dr Rowland has changed the life of many a blind person. His mother had always believed that his blindness was meant to be, and that he had a specific role to play. We couldn’t agree more!
