Washington, DC — Maryland state superintendent of schools and Gallaudet alumna, Dr. Nancy S. Grasmick, will be the main speaker at Gallaudet University’s 141st Commencement May 14, 2010.
Grasmick is the first woman in Maryland history to serve as state schools superintendent, a position she has held since 1991, making her the longest serving state schools superintendent in the nation. She received a master’s degree in deaf education from Gallaudet in 1965, devoted her early career to the teaching of deaf children in Baltimore, and over the years has been a strong advocate for students who are deaf and hard of hearing.
Grasmick has received many awards for her leadership, including the 2009 Presidential Citation Award from the National Association of School Resource Officers, the 2009 Award of Appreciation from the Education Committee of the Maryland Chapter of the NAACP, and the 2008 National PTA Life Achievement Award.
Grasmick, as well as Dr. Robert G. Sanderson, Gallaudet alumnus and former member of the university’s Board of Trustees, will receive honorary degrees at the May Commencement.
