New logo approved

The CCVI Board of Directors approved a new logo for the school during its September meeting. The CCVI Marketing/PR committee worked with Print Media Design throughout the summer creating the school’s new look.

“With our old logo, people saw the word ‘Children’s’and immediately thought Children’s Mercy Hospital” Chris Hernandez, Marketing/PR Committee Chairman, said. “We wanted a logo that showed our work with children and blindness/visual impairment."

The new logo features building blocks, signifying the work CCVI does with young children and braille dots indicating blindness.
