Deaf Student Scholarship

A new scholarship at a West Virginia college will provide aid to deaf-students. The William Johnson Memorial Scholarship will provide two $1,500 scholarships to Marshall Community and Technical College. William Johnson was denied admission to college because he was deaf. His widow, who is also deaf, cried when she found out about the scholarship in his honor. Johnson lived his life by the motto Deaf can, yes!
