Teacher received scholarship to teach the visually impaired

Licking Heights teacher Alyssa Pagano recently received a $2,000 scholarship from the American Council of the Blind of Ohio.

She is a graduate student at Ohio State University and is studying to get her master's degree, which would prepare her to teach children who are blind and visually impaired.

In 2007, the American Council of the Blind of Ohio established an endowment with a $50,000 gift to Ohio State University so that each year, a student working toward a Teacher of Visually Impaired certificate is eligible for a $2,000 scholarship.
