Mississippi lawmakers have recognized USM's Dubard School for Language Disorders for 50 years of service to children. Thursday, the State Senate presented a proclamation to administrators, teachers and students at the capitol, saluting the school on its 50th anniversary.

Since 1962, the school has served children with severe communication disorders.

"We pledge to you that for the children of today, the children of the future not yet born or dreamed of, that we will do all that we can to continue to deliver services to as many as we can," said Dr. Maureen K. Martin, director of the Dubard school, who accepted the proclamation from Sen. John Polk of Hattiesburg.

Currently, about 80 students are enrolled full-time at the school and another 40 receive outclient therapy.
