I am so pleased to read this information from you, Melissa, about this CSDB
seminar; that is just terific! And for all those folks who participated,
you all have a lot to be proud of. Jaking inroads into CSDB, geting to know
the students and staff and letting them know we are not the scary people
they used to think we are, is just the one of the best things our students
can be doing. You guys are really changing the future for blind people and
that's what the NFB is all about.
Congratulations to you all.
