Community celebrates 'Diamond in the Rough'
Tailor Institute held its "Diamond in the Rough" dinner in the Southeast Missouri State University River Campus atrium Oct. 9. The dinner raises money for The Tailor Institute, which provides work training and tools to help high-functioning autistic people to live and work as independently as possible.
Dr. David Crowe, president of The Tailor Institute, spoke before the dinner, and the Jerry Ford Orchestra performed during the celebration. The table themes were "literal interpretations of figures of speech," according to Elaine Beussink, Clinical Director at TTI.
