Yay! Sallie Jo (Kirk) Brown, an alumni of Georgia School for the Deaf, donated $20! Why is it important to have a Deaf Culture immersion at a school? Find out…♥️
Sallie Jo: Hi, I am (demonstrates name sign for “Sallie Jo.”) I am standing right here (pointing to the picture where she once stood, then to the spot she is standing right now.)
Adonia: This is (demonstrates her name sign, “Sallie Jo”). Her name is Sallie Jo (Kirk) Brown. She’s standing in this exact place she once stood when she was a little girl in the picture from 1954! She entered GSD in 1947 until 1960 when she left. Nevertheless, she’s still GSD alumni forever. See how proudly Sallie Job stands in this very place!
Adonia: You know, all kinds of Deaf schools in US have a connection with Deaf Culture (by immension). Public mainstreamed schools – no Deaf Culture immension at all. Deaf schools with Immension in Deaf Culture are very important because it enabled Deaf people to fit into hearing society better. Thank you, Sallie, for your $20 donation! Bye!
Sallie Jo: Welcome! Bye!
