Blindness No Problem for Brannon in 1927


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 12/1/1927.

High Marks for Blind Student

Seldon Brannon, of Orma, this county, one of the graduates of the High School for the Blind at Romney, last year entered Glenville Normal School in September for the current school year.  We are glad this young man, who made a splendid record in his work at the Blind School, is making among the best grades in Glenville Normal.  He passed his preliminary examinations at Glenville with fine grades, making as high as one hundred percent in some subjects and not falling below ninety-five percent in any.  Seldon says he is going to prove that a blind man may succeed in the world.  We hope that he will make as good a record at Glenville State Normal as he did here, and we wish him all the success that is due a big hearted ambitious young man.
