THE Father of special education in Fiji, Frank Hilton, 94, was honoured a lifetime achievement award by the Hilton Organisation yesterday.

His achievements include establishing 10 special schools in Fiji, starting the hearing and vision enhancement unit, Project Heaven and being the national president of the Fiji Crippled Children's Society.

Mr Hilton's son Paul said being part of Fiji's disability community was his father's life.

"Even though he has retired, this is his life, his love and apart from his family, this is it for him," Mr Hilton said.
