The Louis R. Draughon Foundation

The Louis R. Draughon Foundation has been a special friend to TSB for many years.  CCTV's, Braille + Mobile Manager devices, SARA's (scanning and reading devices), and an augmentative communication device are just a few of the many items provided through their grants for the students at TSB.  These "high tech" devices will enable students using large print or braille to acquire knowledge from the written page, to access the internet, and to manage activities of daily living.


There is a strong connection between TSB and the Louis R. Draughon family: Susan Jayne Gwinn, a graduate of TSB, is the granddaughter of Mrs. Jeanette Dorris, a Board Member of the Louis R. Draughon Foundation.  Mrs. Dorris is a blood sister of Mrs. Elizabeth Draughon, founder of the organization.  Susan's mother, Elizabeth Dorris Gwinn, is the niece and namesake of Mrs. Elizabeth Draughon.
