Dear Search Committee,
Hello, my name is Nancy Sommer from Seattle, Washington. I was a former student at HKNC in December 2010 for two months. I would like to express my concerns regarding Ms. Sue Ruzenski who is applying for Executive Director position at HKNC.
Ms. Ruzenski does not show any respect toward DeafBlind students. She does not follow up after we expressed our concerns (classes, case managers, teachers, and dorm staff) in our meeting with her.
Ms. Ruzenski does not seem to be willing to change or improve the services for DeafBlind students. The DeafBlind Community does not consider Ms. Ruzenski as positive model for the DeafBlind. HKNC needs some major changes to get its good reputation back. The world is waiting for HKNC to restore its good name, too. My vote is NO NO NO NO! to Ms. Sue Ruzenski being hired as HKNC's new Executive Director.
It would be a good idea to hire a qualified DeafBlind person to be the new Executive Director so that HKNC can be considered as a model for other DeafBlind people.
