Nan Ellen East Spirit of Advocacy Award

This award is a symbol of appreciation for those who give tirelessly and believe in the potential of all children who are deaf or hard of hearing. It is presented annually to acknowledge an outstanding advocate who encourages, supports, and educates children with hearing loss, their families and the professionals who serve them.

Current Award Recipient

Katie Becker

Katie has been an active and critical part of AR H&V for many years. She has been an American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreter since 1986 and became nationally certified in 2001. Her role as ASL Interpreter goes well beyond professional responsibility. Her deep care for children – and adults – who are D/HH and her commitment to ensuring their involvement in opportunities through communication access is evident in all that she does. Katie proactively looks for ways to serve. She is a crucial link in keeping children who are D/HH informed and involved in activities throughout the state. Katie lives out the philosophy that all children deserve to reach their highest potential.
