VSDB Dedicates Enlarged Campus

The Virginia School for the Deaf and the Blind celebrated Saturday, welcoming alumni and members of the community to their campus to view the result of a four-year process of construction and renovation.

The $72.5 million project included the construction of four new buildings and the renovation of 10 more after the General Assembly decided to consolidate its two schools for the deaf and blind at the Staunton location.

“Today marks the end of our consolidation project,” school superintendant Nancy Armstrong said. “It marks an end and yet a beginning.

Having an environment like this has been great for both students and the staff.”
