We demand someone who can sign like... Laurene Gallimore. Actually, Laurene Gallimore wins my vote.She's Deaf.She signs with enough power to light all the kitchens in America.She is a graduate of that famous boot camp for leaders in our community, Youth Leadership Camp.And she is a special kind of teacher: she teaches teachers.If anyone knows the business of higher education as it relates to ALL education, it is she. Laurene Gallimore, Roz Rosen, John Lee Clark, and Dirksen Bauman. I'd probably put the most energy into campaigning for Laurene Gallimore, though. She has a heart of gold, a sharp mind, and nerves of steel.She is a powerful speaker without being offensive.Over the years, her work with youth has shown volumes of information about her abilities.She opens her arms and welcomes people, giving them a chance before judging them.She is willing to listen to all sides of every story before she makes a decision.And seems willing to allow that decision to be swayed should a compelling argument come up. Laurene is, simply put, the most amazing woman I have ever met.On stage, she is dynamic, convincing, and can move you to tears.Around her, there is an aura of confidence and knowledge.In person, she is humble and honest.She is approachable. My fondest memory of Laurene is watching her presentation at Deaf Way II.I sat through the whole thing with tears shimmering in my eyes.Thinking, this is a woman I would love to be.I left the presentation feeling full of positive energy and certain of possibilities even though the topic she discussed was a solemn one.She was able to take one of the most hopelessly draining topics and leave us feeling as though there were things we COULD do to better the future of our Deaf children. And then I met her in person.I felt so stupid approaching her, so wary.This, a woman whose reputation is known all over the world.What could I say?All I could think of was to tell her how inspiring she was.I told her that I was struck by her courage and determination on stage in the face of so many people who are not willing to acknowledge the oppressive nature of hearing people--to the point where they will trample those who speak up.Laurene was wonderful.She first blushed and then went on to admit she was terrified standing up there on stage that day.Immediately, I felt comfortable with her.One of us.Someone we could look to as a role model, and feel as though we could someday become like her. She's Nobel Prize material.Go Laurene! For the next president of Gallaudet University, I say that Dr. Laurene Gallimore has proven herself a surefire choice, having accomplished so much in the last few decades.I realize my choice of words, "few decades" might make her out to be old, but she is not.It's her soul that is old and wise. Dr. Laurene Gallimore is one of the trailblazers in promoting the Bilingual-Bicultural philosophy in the Education of the Deaf.She is an eloquent presenter, having signed before countless of respected educators and politicians alike.To be an eloquent speaker, one must have the heart of a lion and wisdom that reflects the experience of millions. Heavily recruited by Gallaudet University, she was recently appointed the Director of the Deaf Education, Graduate Program.Before then, she was the Coordinator and Professor of the Deaf Education program at the Western Oregon University.While she has her plate full, she also serves as an advisor to the Black Deaf Student Union and sits on the Board of District of Columbia Area Black Deaf Advocates.She is a tireless civil rights advocate, continuously educating in America and overseas. To be a President of a University, one must possess the following qualities: ability to connect with the masses, ability to understand the intricacies of politics, and understand the power of education and the importance of investment in students for the future comings of successful alumni. Dr. Laurene Gallimore has surpassed the listed qualities by far. Dr. Laurene Gallimore for President of Gallaudet University!
