After nearly 25 years of exemplary service as the Executive Director of Northern Virginia Resource Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Persons, Cheryl Heppner has announced her retirement, effective July 10, 2015.
Cheryl took the helm of NVRC when it was a fledgling organization in 1991 and has successfully led it to become the premier organization in Northern Virginia, with national recognition, providing services to deaf and hard of hearing persons and families.
During Cheryl’s long tenure with NVRC, there were many presentations, rallies, protests and fund raising walks. She joined forces to advocate for TV & movie captions, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and emergency text to 911. She is known for her constant companions, her service dogs, Dana and Galaxy. Her accomplishments and legacy will continue to live on through the lives she has touched and friends she has made during her tenure.
She is greatly appreciated as a person, friend, and advocate. Cheryl’s work is recognized and appreciated by all in the deaf and hard of hearing community.
More information will be shared as it becomes available.
