New NTID building

Deaf students at NTID have a new start-of-the-art building--the  Sebastian and Lenore Rosica Hall.  The National Technical Institute for the Deaf named the building for a couple who were life-long advocates for the deaf. Sebastian Rosica was an audiologist at St. Mary's School for the Deaf for four decades and Lenore Rosica was a speech pathologist. The Chicago-based William G. McGowan Charitable Fund made the facility possible through a $1.75 million grant. There will be a formal grand opening celebration October 11. Read more about the building here or watch a video report from WHEC-TV below (with captions available).
