Organization President Stacy Timberlake, who is a special education major from South Shore, told The Independent of Ashland (http://bit.ly/HAMkmL) that notices are being sent to school district's in Morehead State's eastern Kentucky service area asking them to refer any students who could benefit from the program.

Timberlake, who is nearly blind and has a seizure disorder, said the goal is to build relationships with students and help guide them through college.
