Congratulations to our 2012 Honor Student Michael Arslanian!
Congratulations to ASLEI student, Michael Arslanian, for being recognized for academic excellence at the UNC 2012 College of Education and Behavioral Sciences Honors Convocation.
Michael was recognized by UND-DO IT Center instructional staff to be among the top students in the ASLEI program; recognized for academic standing as well as leadership among peers in courses and/or within spheres of influence outside the academic environment. Fifty-one (51) CEBS students were recognized at the 2012 Honors Convocation.
Michael’s accomplishment is a testimony to his dedicated efforts toward providing quality interpreter services for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing.
On behalf of Dr. Leilani Johnson, Director of the UNC-DO IT Center, Susan Brown, Administrative Coordinator, commented at the 2012 Honors Convocation:
"Michael Arslanian is a senior from Winsor, Colorado. He is an outstanding student, and a 2010 recipient of a scholarship from the U. S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs. Michael has taken his academic learning into his current position as an educational interpreter, as evidenced by his service learning project that has long term implications for deaf and hard of hearing students at the school. Michael is also a sterling example of one who strives for balance in the competing demands of his education, his work and his young family. The ASL-English Interpretation program is proud to nominate Michael Arslanian as one of two 2012 honor students."
