Ann Lovell of Cottonwood Heights, Utah uses her time, talents and personal experience to diligently promote accessibility for individuals with hearing loss. An outgoing, natural leader, Ann encourages others to get involved in their community and in local and national organizations.
Ann has volunteered with Utah-CAN (Communication Access Network) for more than ten years and tirelessly promotes accessibility for the deaf and heard of hearing throughout the state. She first worked with movie theater managers to increase the number of captioned movies shown in Utah and has since been instrumental in getting captions for Broadway Across America productions at the Capitol Theater in Salt Lake City.
As a teacher at the Utah Schools for the Deaf and Blind, Ann instructs in classrooms with students of all ages. She assists children with hearing loss in progressing into mainstream situations and is part of an orientation team that educates parents of children who have been newly diagnosed as deaf or hard of hearing about the communication options available to them.
In addition, Ann is a volunteer ambassador for Cochlear Americas, educating other about cochlear implants. She is a past President and Treasurer of the Utah Chapter of the Alexander Graham Bell Association, a member of the Association of Late-Deafened Adults and serves on the Relay Utah Consumer Council.
Hamilton commends Ann for her leadership and we are thrilled to present her with the Better Hearing and Speech Month Community Leader award for the state of Utah.
This leadership recognition has been brought to you by Hamilton Relay.
