Rocken Our Genes!!

Caden and County Major of Montgomery County Tennessee Jim Durrett
Graduate Student in Speech-Language Pathology completed a Graduate Seminar on Down syndrome with a super fun service learning project on October 11th. As part of their study the ladies learned about leadership, advocacy and professional service.  They put this knowledge to work at the 3rd Annual Community Advocating for Every Special Citizen (CARES)Walk and Expo. The event is hosted by the Clarksville Association for Down syndrome and City of Clarksville Parks and Recreation.

I can't brag on these students enough and although we did not take home first place for the t-shirt contest the Speech Ladies  added to the fun. The seminar students created a photo booth that went with the event theme "Rocken my Genes! Our booth was one of over 50 that served the community at the 1-mile fun walk and expo attended by over 500 individuals.

Community members used all kinds of fun props and poses to show off their Genes!
The Speech Ladies took over 100 pictures of community rock stars!

MSU Homecoming 2014

Murray State University celebrated the 2014 Homecoming “Racers Across America” this past weekend. As for NSSLHA, it was another successful Tent City/Homecoming filled with fun, friendships and Racer pride. Despite the wet and cool weather conditions, NSSLHA members were out in full force as they mingled with Communication Disorders faculty, graduate students and even some alumni. Tent City is a tradition at MSU that we are so fortunate and proud to participate in. It was a joy to see the smiling faces of everyone that stopped by our tent! To top it all off, the Racers completed the afternoon by earning a win over SEMO in double overtime! Go Racers!

CDI Senior Shows Outstanding Professional Service Skills

Bullying has become a hot topic in across the country. Senior CDI major Krista Scott teamed up with Ms. Anna Dicus’s  to help  4th graders at Harrelson Elementary to take a stand against bullying. 

Krista helped the students better understand intellectual disabilities are the impact of bullying on these individuals. She used a toothpaste analogy for hurtful words, once they are out you can't put them back without leaving a mess! 
We are so proud of your initiative and efforts-  thanks your CDI faculty and staff
