SWCIDFest begins Friday

April 9, 2015

The SouthWest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf (SWCID) is throwing a party called SWCIDFest and everyone is invited. This event is in honor of the school’s 35th anniversary of being a part of Howard College and the surrounding community.

The theme is “Hand in Hand: bringing communities together.”

“We live here, we work here, we are apart of this community. A lot of people here do not know about the school, and we would just like to bring awareness to everyone” said Karen Bearden, an interpreter and member of the SWCIDFest committee.
