Graduating students at Lexington Hearing & Speech Center (LHSC), Lexington, Ky, recently shared the limelight with a special guest–Former President Bill Clinton–during the center’s 50th preschool graduation.

As pomp and circumstance played, Dr. Seuss poems were read and 19 hearing-impaired, speech-language delayed and community children filed up to the microphone to show off the sound beginning they received at LHSC to more than 100 beaming parents and grandparents.

President Clinton will be the guest of honor and a speaker at a fundraising event celebrating the Center’s 50th anniversary, to be held on August 13 at the R.J. Corman Railroad Group Corporate Headquarters and Hangar in Jessamine County, Nicholasville, Ky. Some 500 guests, political dignitaries, and agency supporters are expected to attend. President Clinton, the 42nd president of the United States, is expected to address the struggles of hearing loss and the importance of strong communication skills.

For more information on this event, contact Lori Shepherd, LHSC executive director, at (859) 268-4545 or (859) 361-8115.
