Brenson Baker Places 1st Place

Thursday, February 7, Brenson Baker placed 1st in the Braille Challenge Apprentice Novice Division.

The SC Regional Braille Challenge is a preliminary contest for the National Braille Challenge offered by the Braille Institute in California. This contest has a tremendous impact on the lives of students with a visual impairment by allowing them to participate in an academic contest designed around their specific skill sets and by allowing them the opportunity to interact with others from around the state that also read and write braille. Many of the students who participate in the Braille Challenge develop a boost in self-confidence, a sense of accomplishment, and a renewed passion for reading and writing braille.
