Knitting Club

Emily Kleinschmit ’17 and Kellie Stoessel ’17

1. We are co-presidents of the club.

2. We just wanted girls to be able to develop a new hobby that they can do forever while also relieving stress. Our goal is to make useful items for the needy or hospitals. Right now we are working on baby hats to donate to a hospital.

3. Our club helps Marian by allowing people of different ages, grades, economic states and political stances to come together with a similar interest.

4. Knitting the baby hats and teaching people who do not know how to knit is interesting.

5.Yes, if you email us, we can add you to our email list. Yarn donations are also much appreciated.

Sign Language Club

Mr. Kory Delkamiller, moderator

1. I act as the club moderator making sure that meetings are scheduled and events are planned.

2. The Sign Language Club helps its members to better
understand and appreciate how people who are deaf and hard of hearing communicate using their unique language and culture.

3.  This club provides an opportunity for the students to expand their awareness and understanding of deaf culture and the importance that sign language is as a bridge to connect people both hearing and deaf. It also helps to increase awareness of some of the challenges that the people who are deaf and hard of hearing confront on a daily basis.   

4. Having different speakers from UNO come and talk to the club members about why they chose to become sign language interpreters.  We are also planning on hosting a person who is both deaf and visually impaired.

5. The Sign Language Club is always open to new students who are interested in knowing some basic signing skills and who want to learn something about deaf culture.
