DawnSignPress executive, Tina Jo Breindel, receives honor at New York School for the Deaf 200th Anniversary celebration.
San Diego, CA - Local San Diego Media and Publishing House, DawnSignPress, announced that Tina Jo Breindel, executive in charge of community relations, shared the spotlight with Oscar winner, Marlee Matlin, to receive a service award from New York School for the Deaf.
Singled out as a ‘tireless advocate for literacy for Deaf children’ and a treasured Alumna of New York School for the Deaf, Ms. Breindel accepted the award at a Black and White Gala held at Tarrytown Hill mansion, the home of Samuel Clemens, aka Mark Twain.
Accepting the award, Breindel said: "My parents treated me like any other child. I was different only because I was Deaf...and still am. It wasn't just about communication, they also saw that I was acquiring a language. My parents saw I was happy when I came home smiling and full of stories about what I learned (at school)."
Proceeds from the Gala benefit the school's program: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) and also serve to broaden vocational training.
