In his May 11 Team Kentucky update, Gov. Beshear paid tribute to Virginia Moore, the executive director of the Kentucky Commission on the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, who passed away Saturday, May 6. Moore led a national effort to ensure American Sign Language was included at every public press conference, which sparked a wider effort across the United States.

“I will miss her. I know her family, loved ones, her beloved dogs and Kentuckians across this state will miss her too,” said Gov. Beshear. “But as Virginia would remind us in our grief: We will get through this; we will get through this together.”
