Colorado School Makes Braille Yearbook For Blind Student
Conifer High School's yearbook staff were encouraged to make a braille yearbook by a visually-impaired student and that's exactly what they did.
The editor of this year's book, Laurel Ainsworth, said the book took over 1,500 hours to put together and the students were excited and a bit nervous just before giving it to RJ Sampson Friday morning.
RJ had been asking for one since his freshman year and this year he got his wish. While not completely blind, the small print was impossible for Sampson to read so he never got a yearbook. Until this year.
The team put together a braille translation onto tape, but the editor had to find where to place it in the book. Sampson was surprised with the book at a school assembly.
Talk about making someone's year! Great Job Conifer High School yearbook staff.
