During the National Association of the Deaf awards in New Orleans on Tuesday, July 8, 2008 the Utah Association for the Deaf was honored with an award for its exceptional advocacy and service. Trenton Marsh, UAD representative to the NAD conference, and Eli McCowan, attending MDUP activities the same week, were on hand to receive the award.
The Utah Association of the Deaf, established in 1909, is one of
the oldest state associations in the United States. Its first
president was a woman, Elizabeth DeLong – and this was before women
were granted the right to vote!
The UAD has a long list of accomplishments of which we are
proud. The UAD was responsible for the establishment of the
Sanderson Community Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, the
Utah Interpreter Service, the Interpreting Training Program at Salt
Lake Community College, the Utah Relay Service, and a bookstore with
deaf and hard of hearing products. It supports organizations dealing
with deaf children and young adults. The UAD Bulletin is published
monthly with local news and informational articles.
Two free email services are open to anyone who is
interested. UAD Announce distributes news of interest to the Utah
deaf and hard of hearing community, and CMoviesUtah gives a weekly
listing of captioned movies showing in West Valley and Provo.
