A high school senior in Albany receives a special new award from
the Albany Downtown Sertoma Club.
Alexus Burse is the first hearing impaired scholarship recipient
from the club.
The number one focus of Sertoma International
is service to the hearing impaired. Alexus will be graduating from Monroe High
School this month and will use the five hundred dollar scholarship for college.
"I am very proud
of Alexus because Alexis has accomplished a lot. Alexis was not born hearing
impaired, but she lost her hearing at 17 months," said Manya Burse.
