Dozens of students at the DuBard School for Language Disorders at Southern Miss were recognized for their outstanding achievements over the past academic year during an annual Awards Day Program the the university's Payne Center.

The school has about 80 full-time students.

About 20 of the school's students received special recognition, because they have concluded their studies and are returning to their local school districts.

Featured speaker for the event was Whitney Dyess, a recent USM graduate  in child and family studies who was helped by the DuBard School.

"They mean so much to me that I chose to do my internship there for a whole semester and I volunteered there for a whole semester because I felt like I just wanted to give back to DuBard because of what they gave me," said Dyess, who benefitted from outclient therapy at the school.

"This is a day of celebration," said Dr. Maureen K. Martin, director of the DuBard School. "We celebrate all of the children's accomplishments and all of the families and others who make those accomplishments possible," she said.

The school was founded in 1962 by Dr. Etoile DuBard.
