Dubard School to form alumni association

Former students of the Dubard School for Language Disorders at U.S.M. are forming a new alumni association.

Tonight, many former students and teachers met for a second time to finalize plans for the association.  Over the last 45 years, the Dubard School has helped more than 800 children with language disorders.

The school was founded on the Southern Miss campus by the late professor Dr. Etoile Dubard.

"I'm trying to get the former students together to return something back to them for all the things they've showed me and how they've encouraged me," said former Dubard School student Scarlett Reed-Callahan.  "I feel like it's very important for us to get together and share memories and experiences...we're all in this together, we're building for the future, for our own kids as well," said Brett Montague, another former student. 

The Dubard School for Language Disorders opened in 1962.
