Ole Miss Handband performs Signing Rave

April is Disability Awareness Month at the University of Mississippi and every year Student
Disability Services puts on events to raise awareness of the services they provide. This Thursday, the Ole Miss Handband and American Sign Language students performed a Signing Rave. They used American Sign Language to sign popular songs. Ole Miss Handband is a student organization that has sign language performances throughout the year, including signing the National Anthem at every football game. Ronda Bryan, Coordinator of Services for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing students and adjunct professor of ASL said, "Every year we have what we call our "Signing Rave" and it's an opportunity to bring awareness to the fact that we do offer ASL here on campus."

With many students who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, events like this make the Ole Miss campus a little more comfortable. Waverly McCarthy has the story below.
