ASL Club teaches sign language to students

March 3, 2020

 

ASL Club started in December, and it is run by sophomore Nik Schulz and freshman Kendahl Springfield who co-founded the club. 

In ASL Club, students will learn about deaf culture, watch movies or TV shows with deaf characters or sign language, and learn short lessons on signs. 

The club meets every Monday after school in Carrie Heiting's room, D207. According to the leaders, only about five people come to the club each week. 

“We're always welcoming to new members. We're LGBT friendly, open to all walks of life. Our club is a respectful, safe space to make friends,” Schulz said. 

The leaders created this club to help their peers learn a new language and increase inclusive communication within the community. 

“I think learning a new language, whether it be sign or not, is important and everyone should give it a go,” Springfield said.
