On April 26 to 27, the Arlington South Lions Club brought their mobile van and equipment to provide 130 Arlington Mill High School and Arlington Career Center students with free vision and hearing screenings.
Along with the Career Center’s clinic aide and volunteers from Communities In Schools, the two-day service allowed students to get free check-ups right at their school, learn valuable information about their health status, and receive referrals to affordable, local clinics.
The annual vision and hearing screenings provide an opportunity for Arlington South Lions Club members to meet the needs of local schools and serve their community. They also provide a way for Communities In Schools to work alongside partners to eliminate the barriers to students’ education, and connect them to caring adults right in their own school.
