Congratulations to the three outstanding California college students who 
have been selected as recipients of a national scholarship from the National 
Federation of the Blind.  The scholarships will be awarded to them at the 
NFB annual convention in Dallas, Texas on July 5, 2012 at the banquet of the 
National Federation of the Blind.
They are, Kyra Sweeney (Santa Monica), Rachael Griter (Stockton) and Brandon 
Biggs (Mountain View).

I would also like to thank the national scholarship committee for their hard 
work in making this decision.  California had over fifty eligible 
applicants.  There were over five hundred national applicants.  It must have 
been a long arguis process.

I will plan to have the recipients on the agenda at our state convention in 
the fall.  If you were an applicant, please don't forget to also apply for a 
California state scholarship which will be presented at our state convention 
banquet on October 20, 2012.  Those applications will be available on our 
website on July 1, 2012.  www.nfbcal.org/scholarships
The NFB of California convention will be held at the Embassy Suites in 
Elsugundo on October 18 through 21, 2012.

National Federation of the Blind of California
