Students from the Perkins School for the Blind, an organization that provides education, services, and products to people who are blind, deafblind, or visually impaired, hosted Boston Celtics players Jason Terry and Terrence Williams on a tour of the school's Grousbeck Center.
Celtics CEO, co-owner, and Perkins parent Wyc Grousbeck also toured the center— named to honor the lead donation by the Grousbeck Family Foundation— that houses the Perk Café, a radio booth, and a music studio.
Terry and Perkins used iPads to read "The 3 Little Pigs" with students for a "Read to Achieve" event promoting literacy for all, according to a press release.
Steven Rothstein, Perkins president, was delighted with the way the students took charge of hosting the Celtics visitors.
“This is what a specialized education aims to do. Perkins students study not only academics and the arts, but also practical and social skills that lead to a richer quality of life as they become adults,'' said Rothstein. "The Shamrock Foundation and the Celtics players inspire our students to dream big."
