Socrates got the job, however he was assigned to work at another store in Santa Monica with Rodriguez, who is “always talking about giving guys a chance,” (Mosley 8).

On Sunday March 6, 1988 the Board of Trustees at Gallaudet University released the next president via press release. This vote presidency was important because it was the first time there had been 2 deaf candidates. By this time the school had been around for 124 years and never had a deaf president. When the sole hearing candidate was chosen by the board the deaf community was outraged and confused.
