News - Bridging gap between families, deaf

Started in 1995, the program at Floyd is the brainchild of Wendell Barnes, program director and an associate professor of interpreter education at the college.
Part of the reason the program was proposed was the school's proximity to the Georgia School for the Deaf in Cave Spring, Barnes says. "There were and are a lot of families here (in Rome and Floyd County) who have persons who are deaf and already have acquired ASL," he said. "The need for interpreters is increasing every day," said Barnes. "There's no doubt that there need to be interpreter training programs continuing everywhere. "I think we've met a lot of needs for a lot of people, not only the students that want to become interpreters but the students in schools who need interpreters. That's why we're here."
