INSIGHT program visits MSU

INSIGHT, a postsecondary preparation program for high school students who are blind or visually impaired, was held on the Morehead State University campus June 9-16.

In its 12th year, the program is a collaboration between MSU, Kentucky Office for the Blind, Kentucky School for the Blind (KSB), Kentucky Education Development Corporation (KEDC) and the KSB Charitable Foundation.

Participating in this year’s camp were: Abby Cassidy, South Shore; Gabrielle Frederick, Paducah; Corbin Gravil, Louisville; Jacob Hack, Morgantown; Chloe Harris, Barbourville; Jasmine Johnson, Booneville; Jacob Jones, Hopkinsville; Amelia Lillie, Louisville; Shane Lowe, Louisville; Hallie Meek, Phelps; Jolean O'Connell, McKee; Megan Peskoe, Louisville; Caden Rich, Louisville; Taryn Seif, Louisville; Blake Terry, Garrett; Landon Thompson, Campbellsville; Mason Tilley, Bedford and Teaera Watkins, Owingsville.

The program is offered to students who have completed the 10th, 11th or 12th grade and is designed to give them a real-world college experience, including living in a residence hall, attending academic classes and practicing orientation and mobility skills in a campus environment. Although a number of INSIGHT alumni have gone on to enroll at MSU, what is learned through the program are highly transferrable college skills that will support success at any postsecondary institution.
