Evelyn Daniel Anderson became severely disable at the age of 4 and was unable to stand, walk, or sit. She followed her passion of teaching even though it was illegal for disabled people to be hired to teach in Alabama. Her dedication and effectiveness as teacher inspired the Alabama School Board and state senate to repeal the prohibition in 1953, making her Alabama's first disabled teacher.
