Eyesight is responsible for 80 percent of what a child learns, yet 25 percent of school-age youth in the United States suffer from seeing problems. But Marshall B. Ketchum University is changing that through its Shared Visions Gala and V-Awards, an annual event that has garnered upward of $500,000 in the past four years. About 250 forward-looking folks gathered at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library, where they celebrated this year’s honorees. Among them? Rose Fortney, who suffers from retinitis pigmentosa. She was named the signature artist—and guests had a chance to see her work as part of the affair’s exhibit. Visionaries, indeed. –Photos by Ann Chatillon
