All Blind Children of Texas - Braille Revival League of Texas Scholarship

The All Blind Children of Texas - Braille Revival League of Texas Scholarship for a visually impaired college-bound high school senior who is a braille user, was presented in August, 2011. The $1,000 scholarship was presented to Emma Saunders at the state conference of the American Council of the Blind.

The Braille Revival League of Texas (BRLT) is a nonprofit membership organization, an affiliate of the American Council of the Blind of Texas and of the Braille Revival League national organization.  Established in 2001, the purpose of the Braille Revival League of Texas is to promote the teaching, production, and the broader acceptance and use of Braille as the primary tool of literacy for people who are blind.  Its membership is comprised of braille users, teachers, parents, transcribers, Braille producers and other individuals who are proponents and supporters of braille.

The Braille Revival League of Texas strongly believes that the employability and independence of visually impaired children as adults is directly related to the training and assistance they receive in their youth. Studies show that people who are blind and know braille are far more likely to be employed than those who rely only on listening.

The Braille Revival League of Texas enthusiastically endorse and embrace the vision that all blind children in Texas should have a quality life, rich with opportunities that will maximize their potential. We believe that the goals of our two organizations are strongly aligned and that by joining our resources to offer a scholarship to a graduating college-bound high school student we would be bringing to fruition that vision. All Blind Children of Texas’ core values of “empowerment and Individual choice” are central to our commitment to “improve quality of life opportunities for all blind and visually impaired people."
