History

ASBVI has been a home for many generations of students. During the first 100 years of the school's existence, the vast majority of the students resided at the school for 9 months of each year that they attended. For this reason, alumni manifest a deep sense of loyalty to the school and a genuine concern for the well-fare of current students. Over the years many former students have striven to repay in some measure the debt which they acknowledge for the excellent education that facilitated independence and productivity. The ASB Alumni Association is committed to the continued growth and improvement of the school and readily accepts the challenge to emulate the examples of countless outstanding persons who have contributed to the development of ASB in to a school which is second to none in providing quality education and experiences for its students.

Community Involvement

The ASBVI Alumni Association is strictly run by volunteers. Through generous donations and well-organized fundraisers, the alumni is able to support the students at the Arkansas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Contact any of our board members to schedule times to volunteer, or visit our donate page to make a contribution. You can also contact us by Emailing:
