TALLADEGA, Ala. – A total of 56 students enrolled at the Alabama School for the Blind were named to the A Honor Roll and the A/B Honor Roll for the first semester of the 2018-19 school year.

Founded in 1867, the Alabama School for the Blind (ASB) provides traditional and non-traditional programs and educational experiences for children ages 3 to 21 who are blind or have low vision. ASB has won notable acclaim for both the academic and athletic ability of our students while independent living experiences and advanced use of assistive technology help build self-confidence.
