Mike Hess is helping lead a public-private partnership for a new vocational school for blind and visually impaired people to prepare them for high-demand jobs. Hess, founder and executive director of the Blind Institute of Technology, said the effort is to head off a nearly 80 percent unemployment rate among the visually impaired and blind and to get otherwise smart and qualified people into the American workforce.
