The Jekyll Island Lions Club joined the Golden Isles Career Academy for a work day at the Georgia Lions Camp for the Blind on 5 May.  The Career Academy students and staff painted buildings, raked the grounds, and completed several construction projects. Approximately 37 students, staff and Lions turned up to make the day a success.

Prior to the work day, the Jekyll Island Lions Club decided that its “legacy project” in honor of the Lions Clubs International Centennial would be the annual awarding of a scholarship to a senior attending the Golden Isles Career Academy.  It was agreed that the scholarship would be presented during the work day at the camp.   This year, the scholarship winners were Laurann Herrington and Alexandra Tuttle, seen below with Club President Mike on the left and Career Academy CEO Rick Townsend on the right.

In related activity, Lion Jerry donated a Telesensory “Aladdin Classic” to the Georgia Lions Camp for the Blind.  The Aladdin Classic is a video magnifier that performs magnification of printed materials for those with low vision who cannot be helped with a magnifying glass.
