Conexus ‘Gift of Light’ campaign gifts Richmond student in need

Arielle, a Richmond Public Schools student and her mother, Mary, noticed that she started to struggle in school. According to Arielle’s mother, her struggles came right when she began to learn to read.

“So before the testing, I kind of noticed she was having a problem because she got tested right around the time she was learning to read, and you know, as a former teacher, I thought, well she is just learning to read, so I really didn’t think much about her eyesight until I had got the report from Conexus that they had gone into the school and tested her,” Mary said. “And I was like, wow, I never thought about her eyesight. So, once I got the report, I understood that she needed glasses.”
