“Without the New Mexico School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, we wouldn’t know that Jeralynn can accomplish great things, that she can light the way for those around her – just with her smile. We wouldn’t know that her courage and bravery can inspire others. Without them, our school district wouldn’t know that for a kid like Jeralynn, the sky’s the limit!

I am a parent of a blind child with a cognitive and visual impairment…and I support the NMSBVI Foundation in their commitment to raise funds to support the school and the early childhood program, and to help them lead the way in New Mexico and across the country.”
