DPN is the most memorable time during my 40-plus years here at Gallaudet. That time was when the world knew about Gallaudet, and what Gallaudet meant to the deaf world. I was so proud that Gallaudet fought to get a deaf president. Being involved in the presidential gala activities and being on stage with other deaf colleagues as we signed and danced to ‘Celebration’ was exactly what it was— a big celebration.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
