The blind and visually impaired advocates have prevailed in this field, trying to make the world accessible to everyone, including blind and deaf-blind students.  The goal of many educators throughout our history has been to make sure that students have every opportunity to succeed in life. In the display in the museum, we have heroes in the form of group staff photos, photos of previous beloved administrators and the likes of Natalie Barraga.
Phil Hatlen, probably the most prominent of TSBVI's administrators, was a leader in getting national attention for  curriculum designed to aid the blind and visually impaired to succeed.

Below are others that have had a remarkable impact in the field.
