Alisha Bingham was chosen from a pool of over 1 50 people to be one of 10 recipients of the Governor ' s Initiative for Volunteer Excellence (GIVE) Award. The awards were presented at a luncheon in Jackson, Missis- sippi, by the Mississippi first lady, Pat Fordice, and this event was televised by Mis- sissippi Educational Television. Bingham was selected to receive the Outstanding Vol- unteer Service Award for her service to the infants and toddlers in the Project RUN Early Intervention Program. In describing her work Bingham said, " I teach signs to deaf children and their parents. I also teach signs to the staff to help them communicate with and teach deaf children. " She feels that she can relate to the kids, and through teach- ing them, she has learned more about her- self. " What inspires me the most is being part of teaching them their first language and teaching their parents a language that will enable them to communicate with their child. " Alisha graduated from Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C. and received her Master ' s degree from the Uni- versity of Mississippi in Special Education in May 1999. She was the first deaf instructor at Ole Miss and Miss Black Deaf America in 1996. She plans to pursue a doctorate degree. " I want to help deaf and disabled people through their struggling and teach them there is nothing to worry about. " Award " What inspires me the most is Bingham being part of teaching them their first language . . . " WRITTEN BY LEE ANN JARRETT SPECIAL THANKS TO VERA EDWARDS FOR PROVIDING THE PICTURE. 97

In 1904, Dr. Williams T. Taylor established the award in memory of his son, an honored Ole Miss alumnus of the Class of 1871. The Taylor Medal, which honors less than one percent of the student body every year, carries stringent requirements. Eligible students must have a GPA of 3.80 or higher and have completed 105 hours of overall course credit, with 75 of those hours from conventionally graded courses. The prospective honoree must have a history of " meritorious scholarship and deportment. " The colleges of Liberal Arts and Business Administration are each guaranteed two medals, with one going to each of the other colleges and schools. In addition, 28 " at large " medals WRITTEN BY ANGELA FAUKNER are available for general compe- tition among all students, regardless of major. Each school or college submits nominations for the medal to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs in early February. The Taylor Medal selection committee con- sisting of one member from each school or college, submits its recommendations for Taylor Medalists to the Vice Chancellor in early March. The winners of this prestigious are traditionally announced on Honors Day.
