Gallaudet Women’s Volleyball All-Decade Team: 2010-2019

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s volleyball program would
like to take the time to celebrate the rich tradition and history it has
shown on the court for over 50 years. A 13-person committee gathered to
select the All-Decade teams for the past five decades of Bison women’s
volleyball. The series concludes today with the 2010s All-Decade Team.

note:
one of the players is interesting – Lane Peters. She is not deaf but was
interested in a career as an interpreter and felt that Gallaudet was the
best opportunity for her. Gallaudet did not recruit her; she recruited
herself to Gallaudet. Standing at 6’1 tall, she was a prized recruit,
even if she has to travel cross country, from her home in Arizona to
Washington, DC!

random deafsports thoughts

A basketball coach at a non-Big Six school
is angry that the school cancelled the
basketball season because of Covid-19.

The coach felt his team had a chance to become
#1 in the nation among deaf schools, hence
his anger at the cancellation.

CONTRACT OFFICER THINKS ALL DEAF CAN LIPREAD
A new deaf employee joins a government agency.
He requests an interpreter.
The contracting officer is upset and confronts
the deaf employee, telling him that all deaf people
can lipread.
It is surprising that this contract officer never
heard of ADA!

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – October 23, 2020

— deaf artist featured in a New York Times story

Joseph Grigely, a deaf artist and a professor
at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago,
said in a New York Times story that Covid-19 did
not hurt his art business. He just had to change
from old ways to new ways to communicate with
his customers and fellow artists. He previously
taught English at Gallaudet

 

— a deaf participant in the Bachelor Season

Abigail Heringer, who is deaf, is a participant
in the TV’s Bachelor Season. She previously would
not talk about her deafness, but said she will
open up during the program.

 

— New Hampshire candidate makes no deafness promises

Casey Conley, not deaf, is campaigning for a seat
with the Strafford County District in New
Hampshire. He has served on the state
commission for the deaf and hearing loss.
In a newspaper interview, he outlined a list
of promises he will do if elected. Not on
his list of promises is to help the deaf.
So disappointing.

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition – October 22, 2020

— lost in a long list of priorities

A hearing mother of a deaf child showed up
at a board of education meeting. She wanted
to pass a new rule – that only deaf teachers
can teach the deaf. The problem is that others
spoke up with their long list of suggestions,
meaning the committee members may forget the
“deaf to teach the deaf” suggestion.

 

— Deaf Author vs Hearing Publisher

DeafDigest mentioned a while ago that deaf author
Adam Pottle wanted the public to boycott his
children’s book because the publisher drew
illustrations that he felt was racist. But
the publisher refused to pull out the book
from the shelves. Now, the Deaf Author
won as the publisher agreed to pull out the
book despite feeling that the illustrations
were not racist.

 

– our Deaf Truck Drivers

It was not too long time ago that the deaf
were allowed to drive trucks. Are they
doing OK with their jobs as truck drivers?
Said an association of truck drivers:

Trucking companies have already had great success
with people who are deaf

 

This is great!

Some day we will see a deaf truck driver
delivering food to a deaf-owned restaurant.
