Yes. I know Cindy Herbst! Please say "hello" to her for me...

Cindy is one of the people I worked with at Los Angeles Pierce College
back in the early 1980's. A friend of Cindy's, Susan Diamond Bucher,
who is also a hearing CODA, and one of the best interpreters I have
ever seen, worked with the DAC on our SignWriter Newspaper in the
1980's...You can read about the history of the SignWriter Newspaper on
the web...there are some pictures of Susan and our Deaf staff, on this
web page:

So Adam, ironically, 20 years later...if you work with SignWriting,
then we have come full circle!

See Susan attached...the Deaf people around her are Lucinda O'Grady
Batch, Kevin Struxness, Dennis Schemenauer, Meriam Ina Schroeder and
Maureen O'Grady...when everyone was young!
