Good News Fridays: Signing Meteorologist Hopes More People Will Learn American Sign Language

Welcome to the Good News Fridays segment!  Each week here on Geek Alabama, Good News Fridays will feature something good, wholesome, positive, and overall something great. After a long and stressful week, we all need something good to read or watch on Fridays!  Enjoy a heartwarming post below!

Mikayla Smith is a senior at Oklahoma University and works weekends at a local television station in Texas. She recognized that many people get their breaking news from social media, which doesn’t always have reliable closed captioning for members of the deaf community or those who are hard of hearing, so Mikayla started “Signing Science with Smith,” giving weather updates and science tidbits that are accessible to both the deaf and the hearing.
