"Bryan is living proof that anyone can accomplish great things if you put your mind and skills to it." These sentiments from student Donald Lacy convey some of the inspiration gained from Bryan Ward today.  Bryan has Usher's syndrome that caused him to be born deaf and to progressively lose much of his sight. Despite this, he has earned his master's degree in Human Resources. Bryan shared his experiences growing up and managing life while overcoming the limitations of his condition. He advised the students on picking a college and the importance of balancing campus social and academic life. The students were fascinated and thankful for the thoughtful interpreting by Kathleen Riley who also made the trip down from Delaware at the invitation of Peggy Lashbrook. Kathi and Peggy have worked with deaf-blind students for their entire careers "His story was really powerful and he let nothing get in his way," exclaimed student Jordan Leon.  The value of Bryan's counsel and insights as well as his determination left a strong impression on the students. Daj'a White commented, "I know if he can get a college degree, I can do it also. He also showed me that deaf and people who can hear are just alike." We appreciate Bryan's time and ability to expand the awareness and possibilities of our students....
