Kayla Grasso of Old Forge was among several Saint Francis University students working on a project dedicated to supporting a community need. His name is Thomas.

Thomas is an 8-year-old from Lilly who is mostly blind and deaf. Eager to help, Saint Francis University education majors began working on a project to support Thomas’ understanding of and communication with the world around him.

“Thomas’s mom was so appreciative of the students’ receptive and inviting attitude,” said chemistry lab instructor, Jane Gleason. “She wants her son to be a part of a community.”
