2016 Kirk Puckett Eye Mobile Visit

On Wednesday, March 9th and Thursday, March 10, 2016 Nellie Stone Johnson welcomes the Kirby Puckett Eye Mobile to complete eye exams & provide glasses to our students. 

The Kirby Puckett Eye Mobile is an extension of the Phillips Eye Institute's Kirby Puckett Education Center, which was established by Kirby Puckett's family in 2008 to provide the community with resources to improve eye health and eliminate preventable blindness through education and early detection. We are thrilled to be partner with this amazing organization!
