The Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce had a "Thank You for Your Investment" Ceremony at SWCID, Southwest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf, to thank them for everything they do for the community and for their students.
According to SWCID Administrative Dean of Student Services Nancy Bonura, who is also the ADA Coordinator and a Professor, SWCID is currently looking for volunteer opportunities for their students.
SWCID feels that community service would be a great opportunity for their students to become more involved in their community. Plus, they'll also be able to gain a diversified experience in working with individuals and people outside of their social circles.
"This is an opportunity for them to grow as individuals," said Dean Bonura. "Personal growth is so important to us. [The students] learn in the classroom, but we want them to learn outside of the classroom so they learn the responsibility of being a community member; and those are wonderful things that they can put on their resumes for their future."
