On Friday, September 13, 2013, Rochester School for the Deaf 4th graders in Ms. Sarah Gordon's classroom met National Association of the Deaf Chief Executive Officer Mr. Howard Rosenblum through the schools’ videoconferencing system. Mr. Rosenblum, who was in his office at the NAD headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, started as the Chief Executive Officer of the NAD in April 2011 and also serves as an ex officio member of the NAD Board of Directors. He came to the NAD after 19 years as a lawyer, focusing his practice on disability rights and special education law.
Ms. Gordon's students asked Mr. Rosenblum about the history of the NAD, its purpose and how the current organization is structured. Mr. Rosenblum emphasized to the students that the NAD is here to advocate for all Deaf Americans. He encouraged students to volunteer in the community, to study hard in school and to set goals to attend college or to follow a path to productive and meaningful employment after high school.
RSD 4th graders videoconference with Mr. Rosenblum was one of many activities at the school to commemorate International Week of the Deaf.
