Mr. Pickering dedicated 38 years of his life to the education of students with disabilities, including those who were blind, throughout the Midwest. He was instrumental in the formation of the Nebraska State School for the Blind (now the Nebraska Center for the Education of Children who are Blind or Visually Impaired), prior to his tenure as Principal of the Kansas State School for the Blind, where he began as a vocational training administrator. He proudly served as Principal at KSSB for 12 years, until his retirement in 1995.
