Pandemic challenges at the Eastern NC School for the Deaf
The Eastern North Carolina School for the Deaf has been in operation in Wilson since the early 1960s.
While the school is weathering the pandemic like any other school. keeping the doors open is especially important for the students. One of the teachers, Michele Handley, says:
Many of our students are in homes where their parents don't use sign language, and that creates a unique, linguistic isolation for those kids, so that's been a big challenge. Through it all, I feel that we've been very fortunate."
