WASHINGTON, July 5, 2017 – The Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (AG Bell) recently appointed John F. Stanton, Esq., to its Board of Directors for three years.

“I am honored to be appointed to AG Bell’s Board of Directors for the 2017 to 2020 term, and I am excited about what the future will bring for those who use Listening and Spoken Language to communicate. As an AG Bell Board member and an adult with hearing loss, I plan to use my past experience with AG Bell as an advocate and previous Board member to advance listening and spoken language for those with a hearing loss,” said John Stanton, Esq.

Mr. Stanton previously served on the AG Bell Board from 2004 to 2008 and as chair of AG Bell’s Public Affairs Council. On numerous occasions, he met with elected representatives on behalf of AG Bell to discuss listening and spoken language. In 2014, he received the Alexander Graham Bell Honors of the Association award. Since then, Mr. Stanton was featured in a 2016 documentary on deaf lawyers and helped facilitate the admission of a group of deaf and hard of hearing attorneys in the Supreme Court of the United States.

Mr. Stanton is a 1993 graduate of Dartmouth College, where he was the first deaf person to graduate from the college since 1978. He later went on to graduate from Georgetown University Law Center in 1981.
