White Cane Day

 Bill Daugherty, TSBVI Superintendent
Introduced by Lion Patti Robinson

Superintendent, Bill Daugherty will speak to us about TSBVI and White Cane Day.  He will share information about the school and our role in the education of students who are blind, visually impaired, deaf-blind and with multiple disabilities in the State of Texas. Mr. Daugherty will also discuss White Cane Day and TSBVI's role in hosting this event. The mission of White Cane Day is to educate the world about blindness and how the blind and visually impaired can live and work independently while giving back to their communities, to celebrate the abilities and successes achieved by blind people in a sighted world and to honor the many contributions being made by the blind and visually impaired.
