LSDVI celebrates 160 years with a visit to Cenla

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - The Louisiana School for the Deaf and Visually Impaired visited Cenla today all the way from Baton Rouge.

The school is celebrating its 160th year with a special assembly. It was packed with students  from the Louisiana Special Education Center - and their families.  Students gave a brief history of the school, recited poetry, performed cheers, songs - and the band even gave a performance.

"It's all the history of the school, showing how they have a regular ed program. They have cheerleaders, they have a football team, they're a regular school. Our schools are for those that are visually impaired and the School for the Deaf, just like we're a school for the orthopedically handicapped," said Director Richard Bushnell.

The Louisiana Special Education Center provides services for students ages three to 32.
