Solano Community College (SCC) is introducing their new American Sign Language Interpreter Training program and they have asked Nyle DiMarco to make an appearance. SCC is planning the event on March 9, 2019 and they will host an information fair. The early evening event will feature a booth for their new interpreting program . They plan on providing services for any Deaf and Hard of Hearing customers and/or students and will be selling custom T-shirts, tote bags and hoodies. Infamous Mozzeria food truck will be on-hand to provide Neapolitan-style pizza to hungry customers.
Neil Glines, Dean of the School of Liberal Arts said, “Nyle’s visit promises to be a unique and enjoyable experience. We’re proud of our thriving ASL and Sign Language Interpreting Program and this event is one of the many ways we plan to celebrate our connection with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community in the Bay Area”.
The event — presented by SCC’s ASL and Sign Language Interpreting Program under the auspices of the School of Liberal Arts — will also feature professional sign-language interpreters. Amplified headsets will be available for loan and the theater is wheelchair-accessible. The 4 p.m. presentation March 9 is open to SCC students. Tickets are $5. The 8 p.m. presentation is open to the public. Tickets are $15. Both presentations will be held in the Solano College Theater, Building 1200, 4000 Suisun Valley Road in Fairfied.
