I’d always heard good things about Thomas Nelson and good things about the disabled services here. I recommend Thomas Nelson to other vision-impaired people.

Ruth Butts spent nearly 12 hours a day at the Hampton campus attending classes and studying. The Social Science major is visually-impaired, but that didn’t stop her from pursuing an Associate Degree and maintaining a 3.4 grade point average. Her plans after life at Thomas Nelson include relocating to Alexandria to continue her education at George Mason University and pursuing a career in counseling.

“I love school. I like learning. I was once told that once I got out and started school, I would be a different person,” Butts said. “As a blind person, [I] always have to go that extra mile. I just want to be accepted in society. I’d always heard good things about [Thomas Nelson] and good things about the disabled services here. I recommend Thomas Nelson to other vision-impaired people.”
