Everyone – staff and students – were in Fort Collins last weekend for the 63rd Convention of National Federation of the Blind of Colorado. For some, it was their first convention, while others were very involved in a number of activities and divisions.

Above these three recent alums were at the podium at different moments. Left to right: Blanca was part of the CCB presentation talking about her training and her new job; Tabel was one of the scholarship winners, but here is
shown as part of the “My Blindness, My Self” panel; and Ryan also talked about his new job, and how he was quickly moved to a new position that challenged him even more. He had met many challenges as a stdent and that confidence helped him push forward.

Below are two current students during Sunday morning sessions – Dougan and Adia. Dougan completed his Monster Route on Monday. At Tuesday morning’s announcements, he learned he was going out on his support drop. He made it back with hours to spare before Game Six of the World Series Tuesday night.
