Ina WhiteIna White, who passed away on July 1, 2018, was an extraordinary advocate whose contributions focused on making New Jersey accessible to all.

She was an adjunct instructor in Special Education at Kean University, where she lead the Adult Social Group which also provided volunteer opportunities for Kean students, inspiring many to pursue degrees in Special Education.

Ina is deeply missed.
