Governor Morehead School hold Braille Challenge
In the spirit of continuing to promote excellence in Braille, the staff/students at the Governor Morehead School (GMS) held the Braille Challenge on February 16, 2006. For the past four years, the Braille Institute of America has held this unique reading and writing contest to celebrate excellence in Braille literacy skills. This is GMS’s third year participating. Contestants in grades 1-12 participate in contests demonstrating proficiency in Braille reading and writing, comprehension, spelling, proofreading and tactile graphics.
This day consisted of fun educational activities, food, a poster contest, prizes, and a talent show. Guest speakers included GMS graduates John DeLuca and Johnna Simmons, who discussed the importance of Braille in their lives after graduation from GMS.
