I love this time of year. Cooler temperatures and the festive atmosphere of holiday laughter and good cheer bring light-heartedness and smiles to young and old. Much has been written and sung about bells in association with the holiday season. But one need not think only of December when contemplating the ringing of bells. Summer bells have profound meaning for students, their families, and the instructors facilitating the National Federation of the Blind Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning (BELL) Academy!
NFB BELL is a nationwide initiative, and it has grown exponentially thanks to the love, hope and determination exhibited by members of the National Federation of the Blind to ensure that the next generation possesses the skills and attitudes needed to live the lives they want.
Below, you'll find a link to our NFB of Louisiana BELL Academy video. Special thanks to our tremendous state president, Pam Allen, and the many contributors, volunteers, and other supporters who make NFB BELL a life-changing program each year. Thanks also to videographer Ryan Pierce for the hard work involved in producing what we hope is an enjoyable and informative video. Braille Rocks!
