A new superintendent at the State School for the Deaf in Fulton wants to expand its services and raise its profile. School for the Deaf Superintendent Barbara Garrison comes to Missouri after serving more than 14 years in the Outreach Services Program at the South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind. She’s excited about theopportunity. Garrison plans to build a data base through research to ensure that Missouri is providing the best education for its deaf and hearing-impaired students, whether at the campus in Fulton or mainstreamed at a localschool. She wants to increase outreach services here and institute a deaf mentor program for deaf children, similar to a program that exists in South Carolina. Garrison says a mentor destroys many misconceptions and helps deafchildren dream of greater possibilities.
