School Director Receives
WCB One World Award

Carolyn Meyer, director of the Louis Braille School, was awarded “The One World Award” by the Washington Council of the Blind at its annual convention in November. Carolyn was recognized for her “outstanding contributions which have provided an opportunity of equal access for people who are blind or partially sighted.”

The award states, “Your efforts represent large steps in the concept of one world for all.”

The Washington Council of the Blind has a rich history of legislative and community involvement. It works to promote equality, independence, and opportunity for blind individuals in all aspects of the community.

Prior to becoming director of the Louis Braille School, Carolyn directed the Louis Braille Center which provided braille transcribing services and braille instruction for all ages, as well as weekend and summer programs for children who are blind or partially sighted.
