CCS Student Competes in Braille Challenge
Congratulations to CCS student Noah Davis, who recently competed in the N.C. Western Region qualifier for the Braille Challenge, a national literacy competition, which will be held in Los Angeles, Calif., in June.
The Challenge is similar to a standardized test. It includes Braille literacy contests for spelling, reading comprehension, speed/accuracy, proofreading and mathematics.
Noah competed in the Junior Varsity division and has competed in the Challenge for the past four years. He is a 7th grade student in the STEM program at J.N. Fries Magnet School.
Noah has been blind since birth; he uses Braille to read and write daily in his classes. He enjoys using BrailleNote, a compact computer for Braille users that is a word processor and web browser and includes functionality for voice memos, email, book reader, media player, and streaming audio.
