New Ohio Program Visualizing Results

More than a third of Ohio is part of Appalachia. Those of us living along the Ohio River know quite well the similarities in communities on either side of that boundary. Among them is a challenge being tackled by a Foundation for Appalachian Ohio proposal, which has been deemed “Pay for Success Appropriate and Ready” by state Treasurer Robert Sprague’s office.

The foundation plans to develop a mobile vision clinic by partnering with Vision to Learn and the Ohio Optometric Foundation’s iSee program to serve students at Title I schools in the state’s 32 Appalachian counties.

Kudos to both Sprague’s office, for giving the program a chance; and to those in Nelsonville’s Foundation for Appalachian Ohio who have their ducks in a row and the confidence in measurable success to seek out the funding. It will benefit students well.
