These high school seniors weren’t about to leave Maycie Vorreiter out of the annual yearbook fun – that’s why they surprised her with what could be the first yearbook ever printed in braille.

Charlie Sparacio, the yearbook’s editor-in-chief, suggested printing the special edition after the Windsor High School yearbook club in Santa Rosa, California won a $500 prize over the summer. – and since 18-year-old Maycie has reportedly been blind since birth, her excitement was tangible.

“It was one of those really awesome moments that I would want to relive again,” Vorreiter told the Press Democrat. “My hope is that in the future, if there are other visually impaired students that go through high school, they get a yearbook for their senior year, too.”

The yearbook is a foot thick with over four volumes. Though the yearbook reportedly cost over $4,000 to print, the school and publisher divided the costs.
