The organization is known as "NFB of Washington Students". At the moment, it
is moribund, its last president, Jedi Moerke, having gone to Louisiana Tech
to get her O&M degree. Its Secretary is deceased. We have a few high school
students but they were not involved in organizing the NABS affiliate.

I would be pleased as punch to revive the affiliate and make it a going
concern. The problem to date has been one of personnel: we haven't had
enough college-aged people to undertake extensive recruiting. WE will have
events for blind youth at this fall's convention but I suspect most of them
will be of high school age. This is definitely not a drawback but makes it a
bit more difficult to keep an active organization going.

We'd be pleased for you to join us.

Mike Freeman, President
NFB of Washington

hello listers,
Do you know if there is a division of the National Association of blind
Students (NABS) here in Washington state? If so who is the president. I
heard quite some time ago about the NABS in Washington but I can't remember,
are they active? do they hold chapter meetings or some other activities?
any answers are appreciated.
thanks, Humberto
