Scott Murray of Richmond has been selected as the Hamilton Relay 2015 Better Hearing and Speech Month Recognition Award recipient for the state of Maine. He is a dedicated volunteer and contributes freely of his time to serving individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Scott worked as a sign language interpreter for ten years where he attained valuable skills and built lasting relationships with individuals in the Deaf and Deaf-Blind communities. He developed his skills to become a stenographer and has volunteered for several organizations, including transcribing over one hundred Civil War letters for the Maine State Museum, making them available online for the first time.
Scott also shares his skills with individuals who are hard of hearing by volunteering his time to provide stenography for organizations, such as Independence Without Fear and the Iris Network’s Consumer Advisory Council. His service and contributions to these organizations allow each group to extend their reach while giving individuals greater access to participate and be aware of the support available to them.
Scott has also volunteered as a Braille tutor for two years and assists members of his hometown who are elderly, late-deafened or disabled in completing everyday activities such as grocery shopping and doctor’s appointments.
Scott is strongly committed to giving back to his community and working to improve access for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. We commend Scott for his volunteerism and are proud to present him with the Hamilton Relay 2015 Better Hearing and Speech Month Recognition Award.
This leadership recognition has been brought to you by Hamilton Relay.
