Posted on 04/11/2024
Mason Creek Middle School’s Caleigh Caston recently showcased her skills and determination at the regional Braille Challenge held on March 7th at the Georgia Academy for the Blind in Macon.

The Braille Challenge is an academic competition for students who are blind or visually impaired. It promotes braille literacy, a skill essential for academic achievement and employment success. During the competition, students are tested in several areas, including reading comprehension, speed and accuracy, understanding of charts and graphs, and proofreading.

Caston represented the Junior Varsity Division at the competition and placed first in her age group. She also placed 2nd place overall. Sadisha Clarke, Mason Creek Middle School’s teacher for visually impaired students, says her student has been dedicated to mastering the Braille code.

“Caleigh has worked very hard and is now in the running to compete on a national level,” Clarke says. “Her placement in the Braille Challenge is a testament to her perseverance and the opportunities that braille literacy skills can open up, allowing her to compete academically with her sighted peers.”
