MSU Deaf-Ed: 3 WAYS TO HELP SAVE THE PROGRAM
From Katie Hosmer, MSU Student:
Looks like we’re back in business! Sorry for the repetition…
1. SHOW UP TO THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES
This Friday at 9:30, the Board of Trustees will be meeting on the fourth floor of the Admin building at MSU. Come at 8:30 and bring your signs!
At 9:00 we’ll head up to the meeting. It is imperative that as many of us show as possible—the BoT must know that this is important for Deaf and signing communities in Michigan! Stay if you can for three wonderful speakers:
Scot Pott, President of the MDA
Melissa Rich, representative of the Deaf community
Natalie Grupido, an instructor at MSD
Bring friends! Park at Breslin, it’s cheaper. If you want to plan a carpool or need a ride, contact Katie Hosmer at email@example.com. We will try to make sure everyone who wants to be there can be there.
2. KEEP SENDING EMAILS
Keep up the email blitz! A trustee approached a working interpreter and mentioned they had never received so many emails in support of a program before… don’t slow down! Copy the following emails in to your mail client and send them a one sentence reason why they should keep the deaf ed program open!
firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, RTurner@ClarkHill.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, MCTACMM@aol.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
3. TALK TO A FRIEND
Talk to a friend who doesn’t know anything about sign language or deaf ed and explain how important this is. The more people we can get to show up to meetings, email the board, and spread the correct information the more likely we are to get MSU’s attention!
