National speaker will share her trials and triumphs in a free talk at Fort Hays State

Fort Hays State University's chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association invites the public to a talk by Sue Thomas, who has gained national recognition through the TV series "Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye."

This is an opportunity to go behind the scenes to hear her true life story. Deaf from infancy, Thomas will take you on her odyssey of learning to speak, unbearable ridicule, personal turmoil and, in the end, how challenges lead to triumph.

Thomas will speak on the FHSU campus at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 8, in the Beach/Schmidt Performing Arts Center, which is located in Sheridan Hall. There is no charge for admission.

"I have listened to Sue speak before," said Beth R. Zillinger, co-president of the NSSLHA chapter at FHSU. "Sue's story is inspiring to all who hear the hardships she overcame in her life. Listening to Sue will encourage everyone to take on the challenges in his or her own life. Please join us to hear Sue’s inspiring story."
Members of the local chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association are all students in the Department of Communication Disorders at FHSU.  The purpose of the organization is to promote the education of students and to share knowledge of communication disorders with the community. The organization's main annual event is the Ellis County Spelling Bee.
