Believing... Achieving, 2005: Success Stories from Individuals Who Are Deaf and Hard of Hearing
Cate, Tammy, Ed.; Wright, Missey, Ed.
PEPNet 2
This document showcases 32 individuals from across the nation who are deaf or hard of hearing. These featured success stories show a glimpse into the lives of a group of individuals who are inspiring, full of hope, and determined to succeed. These are people from a variety of backgrounds, talents, and interests, as well as from diverse cultures, but all have a common outlook. Each one has continued to pursue a goal. Each one has faced difficult obstacles and barriers. Each one has continued in spite of failures and defeats. And in continuing, each one has succeeded. It is hoped that the stories included here will encourage other individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing, in their personal lives as well as their professional lives, to believe and to achieve. [Funding for this paper was provided by the Postsecondary Education Consortium at The University of Tennessee College of Education, Center on Deafness.]
