Second Issue 2006

Welcome to Connections!

Summer is a season of transitions. For the NMPCT this includes congratulating the 19 Nina Mason Pulliam Legacy Scholars who graduated this past May and welcoming 42 new scholars to cohort 6 at the annual luncheons that the Trustees hosted earlier this month in Indianapolis and Phoenix. I invite you to learn more about the plans of this year's group of Nina Scholars graduates.

Next Application Deadline - September 5, 2006.

Nina Mason Pulliam's personal experience with blindness inspired her to help those with vision problems. She was a Prevent Blindness America board member and a vision-screening volunteer for Prevent Blindness Indiana. Under her direction, The Indianapolis Star established the Fund for the Blind in Indiana with proceeds coming from the annual Indiana-Kentucky All-Star high-school basketball series. In addition, Mrs. Pulliam was a long-time supporter of the Indiana School for the Blind. more>>
