Lions Hearing Center/Greater Metro Detroit Lions Scholarship effort
We applaud Lion Deborah Love, who has been a lion for 20 years, while continuing to assist a number of organizations that support Deaf / Hard of Hearing people. The Lions Hearing Center of Michigan and Greater Metro Detroit Lions Club honor Deborah’s solid commitment and passion to a just cause, which inspired our creative collaboration in bringing forth a unique scholarship opportunity to support Deaf / Hard of Hearing students in her name. LHC and GMDLC along with Lion Deborah Love are well aware of, and understand the needs of Deaf / Hard of Hearing young people. Lion Deborah Love encourages Deaf / Hard of Hearing young people to reach for higher education, realizing the challenges they face especially in the reading and comprehension arena.
Deaf / hard of hearing students will face many unique hurdles as they attend the college, trade school, or University of their choice. Advocacy and Dedication for the creation of these Scholarships were fueled by Lion Deborah’s personal life experiences in assisting her own daughter who is deaf, as she continued to advocate for others in the community that sought her assistance. These scholarships award students extra finances to attend the college, trade school or university of their choice, to assist and encourage them while in college to succeed in the goals they set for themselves. Lion Deborah Love creates partnerships with organizations to establish support processes for the students who receive these scholarships, as they navigate the higher learning institutions of their choice. 17 scholarships have been awarded since 2010 with a goal for 2016-17 of 4 additional scholarships to Deaf / Hard of Hearing Students, seeking higher education.
