• Thomas Samuels Scholarship Winner 2013



    Jose M. Christ, a Hard-of-Hearing student from Argentina, is the winner of the 2013 Thomas Samuels Scholarship. The award, which was created in honor of a former beloved employee of LaGuardia’s Program for Deaf Adults, assists Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing students who have a strong academic record with basic school expenses, such as tuition and books. Jose recently graduated from LaGuardia and is attending Queens College, where he is studying sociology. He hopes to one day become a special education teacher.

    “With the Thomas Samuels Scholarship, you're helping me with the costs of textbooks, allowing me to focus on the most important aspect of school – learning,” says Jose. “I hope one day I will be able to help other students achieve their goals and dreams, and to give back to the community, which I think is what life is all about.”
