DuBard School to Recognize Community Members at Speakeasy Event

Thu, 09/15/2022 - 07:26am | By: KaTrisha Roberson

The DuBard School for Language Disorders at The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) will celebrate the gift of language in true speakeasy fashion once again at The Bottling Company in downtown Hattiesburg on October 6, 2022. The event recognizes the 60-year anniversary of service DuBard School has provided to individuals by helping them to “speak easy.”

The DuBard School Speakeasy is a night of music, food, drinks, and dancing – all while spreading the good news of the school and the life-changing DuBard Association method®.  

The event will once again showcase the school and highlight three members of the community who have shown significant support of the organization throughout the years.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to recognize DuBard School supporters at the Speakeasy each year,” said Missy Schraeder, DuBard School Director. “Whether you are a small business owner, a university employee or member of the community who wants to be more involved, there is always a way for people to give back. We are so appreciative when DuBard School is the recipient of that generosity.”

Three awards will be presented at the DuBard School Speakeasy this year: DuBard School University Friend, Community Friend, and Award of Distinction.
