Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

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.

Alexus plans to attend college in Atlanta.
