National Summit on Deaf Education, as well as its
associate the Early Hearing Detection and

highlights Tawny's volunteer experience with
students while she worked for three years at the
Laurent Clerks National Deaf Education Center.
During her service with the Laurent Clerk
National Deaf Education Center, where she was
employed as a special aide, a teacher's aide, and
a substitute teacher, Tawny assisted a variety of
students, whether they were a senior in high
school or in a Parents-Infant program. According
to nad.org, the law student also helped an
autistic child of deaf adults by providing
thorough care. Tawny currently dedicates her time
to the Maryland School for the Deaf-Columbia,
where she is employed as a family educator.The

appointed to the board of directors of NAD for
the next two years. The law student has been
selected to assist as a consultant on mediation
as well as educational topics. The Ubalt.edu
editorial discusses that NAD is the oldest civil

The organization began in 1880 and the purpose of
the party is to defend human, civil and
linguistic privileges of the nearly forty eight
million Americans who are deaf or have a hard
time hearing. The Ubalt.edu column points out

fascinated with youth leadership and support and
wants to encourage bilingualism to young deaf
children. Tawny told ubalt.edu, I am very
honored to have been appointed and view this as
an important step in my career towards becoming
an education legal advocate, which I have aspired
to become ever since high school. During my term,
I will be leading efforts in creating a five-year
action plan based on legal resources and my
knowledge acquired to date from UB will be
invaluable in doing so.Tawny's extensive
volunteer experience is remarkable for someone
her age. She is the perfect candidate for the
board of directors of NAD. Her knowledge of
educational legal advocacy as well as her
leadership in providing bilingualism to young
deaf children will greatly benefit the NAD. Tawny
should be a role model not only to women or the
deaf, but also to all individuals who aspire to
do well in their community.Are you a law
