Matin Dm by Sid Ross Herbert Kupferberg HARRISON, N.Y. O ne week from today, 18-year-old Beth Terranova will graduate from Harrison High School, fourth in her class-of 275. Pretty, popular and well-adjusted, she's going on to college in September at William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va. So far, there's nothing much unusual about Beth Terranova's life story--except that she is totally blind. What's more, she has not been getting her education at a special school, or even in a special class for blind students, but by taking regular courses, working side by side with sighted students. That's how it has always been with Beth, who has been blind since birth. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Dominick Terranova, have felt that Beth had a greater chance of developing normally at a regular school rather than at an institution for the blind, in a special class for the handicapped, or at home. . PARADE originally told Beth's story in 1968, when she was 10 years old and in the fourth grade. Now we've gone back to visit her at the end of a high school career that has brought her academic honors and the respect and admiration of her teachers, supervisors and fellow students. Beth, who still wears her hair in a ponytail, selected for her personal slogan to be printed in her graduation yearbook: "Keep On Keeping On." "What I mean," she explains, "is that to me life is progress--always looking forward, never looking back, never feeling sorry for yourself. I'm a happy person; I wouldn't change places with anyone." 'See you later* Beth's use of the word "looking" is typical of her. She doesn't employ the vocabulary one might expect of a blind person. "See you later" is one'of her common expressions. In class, when she wants to indicate that she understands a teacher's explanation, she'll say: "I see." Only a few things distinguish her from the . other students. Changing rooms at the end of each 42-minute period, she walks with an outstretched hand touching the wall to guide her through the corridors. In class, she uses a tape recorder to take down what the teacher says--the only pupil who's permitted to bring one to school. continued
