BOARD VICE CHAIR
Adam Guymon was born legally blind in 1977. Later in life, his mobility deteriorated, which led Adam to use a power wheelchair. His disabilities have provided him with a unique perspective – he sees buildings and spaces as designed primarily for individuals who are fully sighted and fully ambulatory, while people with disabilities are left to struggle and try to adapt. He lived this reality for every day of his life. In his time with DRAC, Adam has been involved in event planning, fair housing assessments, and in supporting accessibility improvements in the State of Utah. Outside of DRAC, Adam worked for many years as a passenger assistant at MManTec, where he helped passengers with disabilities board Delta Airlines planes safely, without damaging specialized equipment. Today, Adam remains active with several nonprofits and advocacy organizations in Salt Lake City.
