Deaf and blind students run their own news show

HARRISONBURG, Va. -- Deaf and blind students in Virginia are learning confidence by doing newscasts.

They are learning how to better communicate all thanks to this new class.

They've learned how to use their own cameras and how to run their own news show.

Students and teachers alike said it's a great way for the students to feel proud.

"It's exciting. It makes us feel happy. We feel like we're a part of the school and helping it grow," said Faithlyn Robinson, teacher.

"She's so inspiring. I've been really impressed with her work. Even the other students are learning from her as well," said Hannah Mills, Junior.

This school is the only school in Virginia using the program.

Students plan to enter a contest to show off their work later this school year.
