Deaf group to sign wave

Maui Deaf Friends, which strongly supports the return of Angel Ramos as principal of the Hawaii School for the Deaf and Blind, will be sign waving from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Thursday on Kaahumanu Avenue near Sears.

The group was “heartbroken and shocked” by the recent transfer of Ramos. Members say the school had thrived with his knowledge of deaf culture, shared American Sign Language fluency and leadership. Under his guidance, the school became nationally accredited.

“We believe Dr. Angel Ramos’s professional leadership is vital for the success of deaf students in Hawaii,” the group’s news release said.
