Congratulations to Our Retirees, Laura Cornell and Janet Law!

TAPED OUTSTANDING PROGRAM SUPERVISOR
Outstanding Program Supervisor of the Year was awarded to Brazos River RDSPD's Angela Belding this summer at the Statewide Convention in San Marcos, Texas.
"Angela Belding is truly an inspiration to everyone with whom she comes in contact - and that is many - and she continues to do so even after 30+ years in the field. Not only does Angela lead and serve Brazos River RDSPD with a heart and passion like no other, she dedicates herself with the same energy to Imagination Texas, SWCED, TAPED, TEHDI, and the TCC Interpreter Training Program. With her kindness and firm sense of rightness, she serves as a role model for everyone. Angela's efforts not only benefit the children, educators, and parents of our program, but deaf education as a whole throughout the state of Texas. We all reap the fruit of her labors and commitment to children who are Deaf or hard of hearing." -quote from the program
