Colorado Center for the Blind
Take Charge with Confidence and Self-Reliance

A Send-off for Two Colleagues and Friends

Not only did we say good-bye to our 24 summer students in the past week, we also saw the departure of two friends and colleagues who’ve been with us for much of July.

Kimie Beverly works with Cane Travel Instructor Steve Patten at the corner of S. Prince and Alamo in Littleton. She joins the NFB’s Governmental Affairs team this week.

We’ve been excited to host Kimie Beverly as a student for the past three weeks. Kimie is President of the National Federation of the Blind of Nevada and a past NFB Scholarship recipient. Sunday she flies to Baltimore where she starts on Monday working at our National Center for the Blind on legislative initiatives such as the Transitioning to Integrated and Meaningful Employment , or TIME Act. Americans with disabilities relegated to the injustice and indignity of subminimum wages have a new champion in Kimie Beverly! It’s been great to have you with us Kimie!

Will Reynolds works with summer student Keaton. Will completed part of his practicum for a Master’s degree with CCB this summer.

Will Reynolds also spent a couple of weeks with us at the Center completing practicum hours for his Master’s from the University of Northern Colorado. He plans to become an Orientation & Mobility Specialist working in K-12 schools. Will was particularly interested to work in a setting such as the Colorado Center for the Blind which uses sleepshades as a learning tool. He worked with our summer students for two

weeks before joining the Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning (BELL) Academy in Westminister this week. At this writing, Will has a job offer for the upcoming school year. We wish Will the best and look forward to a long collaboration.
