Camp Marvin Hillyard
The Force is with Campers

Fox 26 KNPN reported July 11, 2016: This week at Camp Marvin
Hillyard, a group of nearly 60 kids, ages 7 to 14, accompanied by about 25 staff members, are learning all about space and aviation, along with the traditional swimming, archery and horseback riding camping events. But along with the smiles, giggles and laughs, they are sharing their thoughts through their hands.

It’s a Star Wars theme at the Sertoma Clubs of St. Joseph Deaf Camp, but this group is anything but quiet about it. Read more. 

KCUR Show about Deaf Culture and Cochlear Implants

KCUR, the local NPR station in Kansas City, aired a show about deaf culture and cochlear implants on its Central Standard program. The panelists included Katie Locus, an English teacher at KSD; Bridgette Polson, a mother who opted not to have cochlear implant surgery for her daughter; and Rob Jefferson, a late-deafened adult who benefits from the cochlear implants he received several years ago.

A video of the program can be seen at: http://kcur.org/post/senses

Central Standard is hosted by Gina Kaufmann and produced by Matthew Long-Middleton.
