The NAD is the nation's premier civil rights organization of, by and for deaf and hard of hearing individuals in the United States of America.
The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) today announces that its Board of Directors for 2014-2016 is now fully complete with the appointment of three new members. Joining existing and recently elected Board Members, we are delighted to welcome Sherri Collins as the new Region IV Board Member, and Alicia Lane-Outlaw and Pamela Lloyd-Ogoke as Appointed Board Members.
Wendy Brehm hails from Maryland and had various experiences in education growing up. She attended the Kendall Demonstration Elementary School (KDES) then went to Eleanor Roosevelt High School (ERHS) for her first two years of high school. Later, she transferred to Don Bosco Cristo Rey (DBCR), a private school for one year, then graduated from the Model Secondary School for the Deaf (MSSD) in June 2014.
Congratulations Dr. Al Mehl for receiving September 2014’s #NADHandwave! Al has been very involved in newborn hearing screening since 1992 and took an integral part in passing Colorado’s newborn hearing legislation in 1997. The reason he’s being recognized this month is because of his recent opinion piece in the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)’s newsletter on how to talk about being deaf, and what makes one “disabled” (or not!).
