Career Day For Deaf & Hard Of Hearing Students


The 8th annual Career Day will be held tomorrow for 7th grade through high senior age deaf and hard of hearing students to help educate, motivate and encourage them to plan for their future. The event is being held Thursday, March 1 from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the conference center of the Nashville Public Library at 615 Church Street in Nashville with free parking available in the library parking garage. Bring your own lunch!

Interactive programming designed to illustrate educational opportunities and processes will be used so students will learn the benefits of acquiring a good education and how that education will assist them in getting a job. Information will also be available about support services to help students succeed. At the same time, teachers, parents and other professional and support personnel will learn that they should not lower their expectations for these students because of their hearing loss.

Career Day is sponsored by: Library Services for the Deaf & Hard of Hearing, Nashville Public Library; STARS Services for Deaf & Hard of Hearing; Tennessee Division of Rehabilitation Services; Tennessee Council for the Deaf & Hard of Hearing; and Bridges: Serving People who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Hearing.
