Capuchino Graduate and California State University Northridge Student Improving Athletics for All Students

Nicholas Sanchez Signing  SCapuchino graduates go on after high school to make significant community contributions. Nicholas Sanchez is one example of a Capuchino graduate who is making his mark in a positive way on the community he serves. As a California State University Northridge (CSUN) student, he is conducting professional development workshops for interpreters to better understand sports so they can help athletes. This is the first time a student will be hosting a workshop at the annual Summer Institute for Interpreter’s Professional Development — an event hosted by CSUN’s NCOD: Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services. As a student and athlete who is deaf, Sanchez was familiar with the struggles he experienced with his coaches instructing sports. When Sanchez attended Capuchino High School, he was recognized as a top athlete for sports such as, football, soccer and track and field. He later spent eight years at five different community colleges searching for a challenging, educational environment in sports. Nicholas is quoted in a CSUN article, “I hope that with my workshop, we will have more successful interpreters in the sports area and, as a result, more successful deaf athletes.” Thank you Nicholas for serving your community. You make the SMUHSD and the Capuchino Mustangs proud. Information and photo from a CSUN article found HERE.
