Milo P. Johnson Award of Distinction
Barbara Moore plays a pivotal role in helping students succeed every single day. Her mastery over the ever-changing aspects of the Braille language unlocks the doors of learning for students who are blind or live with other visual impairment. Tests, textbooks, and even homework assignments are transcribed for students across the county, and her expertise has provided Braille materials for New Employee Orientation and Personnel Services. She introduced the office staff to a system called “Bmail” that allows for email Braille to be opened, downloaded, and embossed without being corrupted. This innovation allows for a greatly-reduced turn-around time for teachers and students needing her transcribed materials. Her dedication is most recognized when she greets urgent assignments with a smile—fully aware of the instant impact her work will have on the ability of students to learn.
