The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club recently hosted a vision screening project at Scottsburg High School for all sophomores. This is the second year for this project to assist students identify and correct vision problems that might impact their ability to be successful in school. This program started as a pilot project last year with Kiwanis International. The team of volunteers screened 167 students on a Friday morning at SHS. The Kiwanis partnered with Kids First, Kiwanis corporate member Austin Tri-Hawk, Scottsburg Lions Club and Kiwanis International to ensure resources were available to assist students who may not have the means to acquire corrective lens. Heather Crites, SCSD2 District Nurse coordinated the logistics and made the screening machines available for this project.
