KSSB would like to thank First National Bank for their generous contribution, in the amount of $20,000.00, to our Blind All-Stars Foundation for our Vocational and Independent Living Programs! The grant will allow us to expand our services and programs to ensure that students with visual impairments have opportunities to work, live, and recreate as full participants in their chosen communities.
