New Audiology Clinic

Pensacola’s Holm Elementary School is getting a state-of-the-art audiology clinic at a price tag of $400,000. A ground-breaking ceremony was held Tuesday with representatives of the Sertoma clubs. The nonprofit organization supports those with speech and hearing disorders. The school district gave $125,000 to the project and Sertoma raised the rest. The 1500 square feet facility replaces the one located at West Pensacola Elementary. Better and newer testing equipment will be purchased for Holm from federal stimulus funds to serve the 200 students who are deaf or have hearing loss.
