Who We Are

The Nebraska Association of Blind Students (NABS) is an organization devoted to helping blind students reach their educational goals and forge meaningful connections with other students. We can help students obtain educational materials as well as assist them in finding solutions to problems that they encounter in the classroom. Additionally, we plan to host a variety of fun and engaging events. NABS is a division of the National Federation of the Blind of Nebraska who we work with to ensure equality for the blind.


These are the current board members for the 2024-25 term. Board members are elected at our anual business meeting at the state convention.
