d to Deaf

Twenty-one formerly deaf (small d) became Deaf (capital D) after receiving their certificates today, completing a six weeks immersion course in ASL and Deaf Culture at Gallaudet University. 
Here's one of their testimonials:
"When I was deaf, I didn't have any friends, now I have many Deaf friends."
This program was made possible by a federal grant from the Department of Education, with stipends available to those who qualified.
