MUSKOGEE, Okla. -- The Oklahoma School for the Blind and their Parent Teacher Organization will host the annual “Future Shock” Career Day on Thursday, Nov. 3.
Future Shock is a unique educational experience designed for blind and visually impaired students from across the state of Oklahoma, their families, teachers of students with visually impairment and other interested individuals.
The event is scheduled from 12:30 until 3:10 p.m. on the OSB campus, 3300 Gibson Street in Muskogee.
Organizers target a specific group of students and offer a customized approach to informing them about the potential career opportunities.
There is no charge to attend.
“Future shock is an opportunity for students who are visually impaired or blind to gain information about jobs and skills that are needed to perform those jobs from people working in each specific field,” OSB Superintendent Rita Echelle said. “We will also have a panel of former OSB graduates who come and answer questions from students about how they became successful in a variety of exciting careers.”
“One unique feature of our Future Shock is that the majority of our speakers are blind or visually impaired,” Linda Graber, OSB Parent Teacher Organization president, said. “Our speakers who present their knowledge to the students have achieved the success and independence that all job seekers want, including blind and visually impaired students.”
Oklahoma School for the Blind is a division of the Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services.
