Briar Woods senior hopes to make impact through sign language

One Briar Woods High School senior is hoping to have a positive influence on the world's hearing-impaired.

Payton Hale is planning to major in American Sign Language at Eastern Kentucky University next year.

Hale has been selected as one of 24 finalists out of the more than 6,000 who applied for the Church Hill Classics 6th annual Frame My Future Scholarship Contest. CHC is a leading manufacturer and online retailer in the college diploma frame industry.

The nationwide contest asked students to create an original piece expressing their future aspirations both personally and professionally.

A $1,000 scholarship will go to the five top-voted entries and the entry receiving the most votes will also earn a matching donation of $1,000 to the college or university’s scholarship endowment fund in his or her name.

Hale hopes to use sign language to help struggling communities, spread sign language knowledge and share her love for signing.

Vote for Payton’s entry by visiting diplomaframe.com/FMF2014-Hale from April 2-30. The top five winners will be announced May 14.
