The Illinois School for the Deaf will be represented at Barack Obama's inauguration in Washington, DC. State Senator Deanna Demuzio secured 15 tickets for both staff and students at the US Capitol. One of the ticket will go to a special friend: Robert R. Davila, president of Gallaudet University. The group will stay at the school while visiting the nation’s capital.
When Obama visited the Illinois School for the Deaf this past fall, Michelle Obama won the hearts of students by signing My name is Michelle.
