Since AACE (formerly Disability Services) was created, our Georgia State University community of faculty, staff and students have witnessed how our students with disabilities have enriched our culture. We have seen students who are blind captivate us with impressive musical talents at various activities and events, students with significant medical and psychological challenges serving as Math and English tutors and Deaf and hard of hearing students becoming valuable community members and leaders. That is the case of one of our Deaf students, Demarco Pittman, who according to 11Alive became the first black, deaf man to win the homecoming title in Georgia State University’s history. Our Georgia State University Access and Accommodations Center is proud to share his inspirational words in this brief video:
