Deaf Education Symposium to honor GISD’s Laura Cornell

February 6, 2013


Laura Cornell, a deaf education paraprofessional at Granbury High School, will receive a top award from the Texas Deafblind Project at an upcoming symposium.

Cornell will be honored with the Intervener Award for excellence in support to a child with deafblindness and for contributions to the success of the intervener model in Texas.

“Laura is a true asset to the children and families that we serve,” Granbury ISD Special Education Director Chuck Schreiber said. “This award reflects her hard work and commitment to providing the best education for these students.”

She was nominated by Susie Tiggs, a deafblind consultant at the Region XI Education Service Center in Fort Worth, and Angela Belding, supervisor of the Regional Day School Program for the Deaf.

The award will be presented during the symposium on Feb. 22 in Austin.

The Texas Deafblind Project is a federally funded program that provides information and training about deafblindness to families and the professionals that work with them.

The outreach tam provides technical assistance that is designed to meet the unique needs of children who have both a vision and hearing impairment.
