Health Science Students Participate in "Trust Walk"

Students participating in trust walk. Mrs. Plyler’s health science students recently participated in a “trust walk", where half of her students were blindfolded to represent being blind and the other half were their mute guides, who had to lead them around campus.  Students have been studying the body’s senses and this gave them an opportunity to put themselves in the shoes of those with sensory deficits. The reflections helped students empathize with people who experience the loss of their vision or ability to speak.
