On July 20, Chris Hannah visited our campus with his dog, Cole, who is deaf. Cole, and Chris’s 10-year-old nephew Kevin inspired Chris’s comic book, “The Adventures of Captain Cochlear and Maestro Mutt.”
Chris is a music teacher in an elementary school in New Jersey. He rescued Cole from a shelter. Cole cannot hear, which was an inspiration to Chris in adopting him. Chris well understands the importance of raising awareness around a message of acceptance and inclusion and did a wonderful job working with students.
ABC6, NBC 10, FOX29 and KYW Newsradio also visited Clarke Philadelphia to cover the event! Here’s a peek into Cole’s interactions with students:
