Ginger Bennett, Director of Interpreter Services
I have been with ACC for 15 years with the last four being the leader of the Interpreter Services team which includes the In-House Captioning service. Our goal is to provide communication access for deaf and hard of hearing students, faculty, staff and visitors. We are able to do this by providing interpreters and captioned media. I would love to know your thoughts and concerns. Come and join me for some fun, facts and figuring out how we can work together to provide the ultimate communication access.
