SC Deaf & Blind School Students to Perform in Columbia

SC Deaf & Blind School Students to Perform in Columbia


Fine arts students from the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind (SCSDB) have been invited to perform before the SC House of Representatives on February 25th.

The students will be introduced by Rep. Mike Forrester at 10 a.m. and will perform two songs, “Shout and Feel It” and “We Are the World.” The students will represent SCSDB’s Divisions for the Blind, Deaf and Multihandicapped.

SCSDB students have been granted the annual honor of performing in the State House for more than 20 years. Upstate students selected for this year’s performance include: Kelli Jane Barnes, Ta’Nayia Moates, Lee Miller, Katie Roche and Sydney Simons of Spartanburg; Devon Carter of Clarks Hill; Deven Frazier of Cordova; Elijah Gregory of Union; Sierra Hardy of Greenville; and Kate Williams of Lyman.

SCSDB parents, alumni and representatives of the SCSDB Board of Commissioners will be in attendance to enjoy the students’ performance.

SCSDB serves children who are deaf, blind or sensory multidisabled through its main campus in Spartanburg, public school districts in counties throughout the state, early intervention programs in the homes of infants and toddlers, and an array of additional services for individuals who are deaf or blind. The school holds two national accreditations, has been selected by the state as a Palmetto Gold School, and has been named a Red Carpet School for excellent customer service.
