At the ASLTA Conference, we were honored to engage with passionate educators, learners, and advocates of American Sign Language. The energy and enthusiasm were palpable as we shared insights, learned from experts, and explored new horizons in ASL education.

ASLHS Banquet

Our ASLHS Banquet was a true highlight, bringing us even closer as a community. We had the pleasure of getting to know more of our remarkable ASLHS members, connecting with kindred spirits who share our passion for ASL and academic excellence. Congratulations to our esteemed ASLHS Teacher of the Year, Arlon Nash, for his dedication to shaping the future of ASL education.

During the banquet, our ASLHS workshop shone a spotlight on the wonders of our ASL honor society program. We were thrilled to share the success stories, the impact, and the opportunities that define our society. Your enthusiasm and commitment to ASLHS made this event truly remarkable.

As we move forward, let's carry this feeling of togetherness, knowledge, and passion with us. The bonds we've forged and the experiences we've shared will undoubtedly fuel our journey ahead.
