Oneida County Executive Anthony J. Picente, Jr. today announced that he has proclaimed today “New York State School for the Deaf Day” in Oneida County to highlight the important work done by the unique Rome-based school serving young people from across New York State.
“The New York State School for the Deaf in Rome has provided a quality education for its students and served to provide a stepping-stone for young men and women who want to use their outstanding abilities to build a stronger future for themselves,” Picente said in his proclamation. “The New York State School for the Deaf in Rome began and has continued to serve its mission because of the dedication of area residents, school and governmental officials to ensure that the students served by the school have the opportunities provided to other youth, and also have the enrichment of a supportive core group of friends.”
“The New York State School for the Deaf in Rome is a part of the fabric of the Rome community through the outstanding efforts of the school’s administration and faculty and through the wonderful efforts of the students to take part in activities that provide an extra dimension to their educational experience,” Picente said.
“The New York State School for the Deaf in Rome has more than fulfilled the expectations and dreams of those who founded the school in 1875, and has achieved the status of one of Oneida County’s prestigious assets that continues to inspire its youth and help them aspire to greatness,” Picente said.
