Scholarship to Aid Speech Therapy

Scholarship will aid speech therapy:
The Greater Tampa Sertoma Club presented a “Help Deaf Kids Talk” scholarship to Tatiana Leal, a cochlear implant recipient who qualified to receive assistance. The scholarship will help Tatiana receive speech therapy at Bolesta Center at the University of South Florida. Kelly Teegardin, a clinical speech therapist at Bolesta Center, referred Tatiana for the scholarship. The Greater Tampa Sertoma Club also donated a pair of programmable state of the art hearing aids to Teegardin, which will be used at the loaner bank at Bolesta Center.
