Texas Fellows is a program that recognizes and applauds those who have been instrumental in helping someone to become a VI professional: either certified as an O&M specialist or to teach students with visual impairments. A TEXAS FELLOW can be a parent, teacher, rehabilitation specialist or another VI professional.
People are eligible to become recognized as a TEXAS FELLOW if their candidate started their first VI-related training program after May 15, 2008.
TEXAS FELLOW and their candidate each receive the following benefits:
- special recognition at all statewide functions sponsored by TSBVI;
- recognition for 1 year in TX SenseAbilities; and
- a $50 Gift Certificate redeemable at the TSBVI Curriculum/Publications site.
