Tom C. and Bonnie Clark Deaf Education Scholarship

Thomas Cecil Clark passed away on Saturday, March 13, 2010. Tom was a beloved teacher, leader, and mentor who loved Deaf people and devoted his life to training teachers and parent advisors who could meet the needs of deaf children and their families. He was truly a pioneer of Deaf Education and Early Intervention services for Deaf children in the nation. He understood that the key to success for deaf children was early access to language and he pioneered programs that provided services to families of deaf children in their homes. He developed the SKI*HI Institute at Utah State University that has become the model for early home intervention programs for deaf children and for children with disabilities in the United States and throughout many parts of the world. He truly loved Deaf people, Deaf children and families. His exuberant spirit and enthusiasm for life will be greatly missed by his family and colleagues and all who were privileged to know him.
