SPOTLIGHT: Blind ISU professor teaches chemistry
When one of Cary Supalo's students says a chemistry problem is too 
difficult, he has a standard reply that usually stops them cold.

"My being the blind guy," he tells them, "if I can do that, you can do 
it, too."

Supalo is an assistant professor at Illinois State University who has an 
Indiana-based business that sells adaptive equipment for the blind or 
visually impaired.....

Before Supalo attended college, he hated chemistry.

"I wasn't allowed to touch anything in high school," he said. But that 
didn't stop his thirst for knowledge.

"I just love learning. Learning is my passion," he said. And science was 
one of the things he wanted to learn.
