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.

It is easy to join the TEXAS FELLOWS.  Just complete the application form you receive by calling KC Dignan at 512-206-9156, emailing <>, or by downloading an application from our website .

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.
