The D.A.R.E. cadets began their experience in the Lighthouse boardroom. They visited with a blind IT Employee of the Lighthouse and who also DJ’s outside of work. The cadets were fascinated and asked many questions. They were introduced to braille, a form of written language for blind people, and worked on braille activities. The cadets also learned about eye diseases and were able to experience how to escort a blind person. In an effort to connect with the blind community they were blindfolded and walk with a cane. They also enjoyed pizza provided by the SISD Police Department.
