Welcome Lindsey Hinzmann!!

Accessing teacher and peer communication in the classroom is vital to today’s learning in school. For students with hearing loss, this can be difficult even with the use of hearing aids or cochlear implants. The University Sertoma Club has stepped up to provide Lincoln Public Schools and SNRP with new innovative technology that assists students in hearing their teacher, as well as, co-teachers, small group discussions, and even intercom announcements. These new microphones, called the Phonak Roger Touchscreen, allows students to not only hear their teachers, but also access small group discussions that are such an important part of today’s modern classroom. Thank you University Sertoma Club for your generous donation of seven of these microphones, more than $5,500, to help benefit students with hearing loss.
