HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The academic accomplishments of some special young children at Southern Miss were recognized in two separate ceremonies Friday morning. Dozens of students were praised for achieving their goals during an annual Awards Day program for the DuBard School for Language Disorders at the Payne Center.
About 20 of those students are graduating from the school and will return to their public, private or home schools next fall.
"These children have so much potential, but it takes so much effort and energy for them to learn the things they learn," said Dr. Maureen K. Martin, director of the Dubard School for Language Disorders. "But, the goal is always on what they can be and helping them to reach those dreams and goals," Martin said.
Elsewhere on campus, nearly two dozen young students at The Children's Center for Communication and Development received their certificates of graduation in a ceremony on the school's front lawn.
"There are a wide variety of reasons that the children come to us for help," said Cindy Bivins, interim director of The Children's Center for Communication and Development. "When they reach this point, we are confident that they have achieved the skills they'll need to succeed," Bivins said.
The DuBard School for Language Disorders is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The Children's Center for Communication and Development has been serving students since 1974.
