Minot State University is celebrating it’s 55th year of offering deaf education to students.

Cortnee Adasci is currently enrolled and will be getting her certification in deaf and hard of hearing.

The young scholar is inspired by deaf individuals and wants them to thrive like anyone else.

After several classes and lectures, she’s learned that it’s important to look at their abilities instead of the disability.

“Deaf individuals, they can do anything except hear so really as a future professional we need to remember that giving the right support, they can succeed in every area of life.” said Cortnee Adacsi, Speech Pathology/Deaf and Hard of Hearing Major.

Cortnee is also a speech pathologist major in her 2nd year of graduate school.
