Scholarship

We will be presenting our Elmer Wright Memorial Scholarship to a deserving blind student. Proceeds from the dinner support the scholarship and other chapter initiatives. The scholarship honors the memory of one our founding members, Mr. Elmer Wright. Mr. Wright was deeply concerned about education for blind children and ensuring that blind people receive equal opportunities to a quality education. His enthusiasm and passion for helping fellow blind people achieve their dreams was infectious and fueled the Central Oklahoma Chapter in its early years of existence. He is deeply missed and will be remembered fondly for those of us who had the honor to know him.
