SALINAS, Calif. (KION) A Salinas High School student is helping visually impaired students by raising money for new signs to help them navigate the campus.

Rhiannon Albers has raised $10,000 so far, according to the Salinas Union High School District.

The district said Albers saw that there were not many aids for visually impaired students to navigate campus, and she said the issues were especially apparent when parents or new students visited campus.

The signs will be installed in the school starting Wednesday.

The project is part of Albers' work towards earning the Girl Scout Gold Award. She is set to earn the award when the project is finished.
