A Visit with Florida Governor Rick Scott


April 29, 2014—Current and alumni families from Clarke Jacksonville have been visiting the state capitol of Tallahassee to raise awareness of issues relating to children who are deaf and hard of hearing in the state of Florida.

The continued presence of our students and their families has made a world of difference in informing state legislators about what is possible for children who are deaf and hard of hearing. Earlier this year, alumni student Knox Fisk, along with his mom and brother, had the opportunity to visit with Florida Governor Rick Scott and thank him for his support. We appreciate all the families and students who have taken time out of their busy schedules to make the trek to Tallahassee in support of the important issues that impact our community.
