Let Us Introduce Ourselves
If you spend any time in the ASL Lab this semester, we are the people you will see.
Feel free to come by and ask for our help, we'd be glad too. Just remember: no voicing.
We strive to encourage an immersed learning environment, and to help with that we
would like to introduce ourselves.
Hi, my name is Justin Wuetcher and I am the ASL lab manager. I recently completed
my undergraduate degree in graphic design and am now pursuing a masters degree in
sociology. I started signing my junior year of high school when I took a one week
introductory course, though I didn't sign much for the next 2 years it was enough
to make me realize that I wanted to learn more. When I started college I began attending
Deaf Culture Events and finally got into a class my sophomore year. I've completed
ASL I, II, III, IV, Fingerspelling, Deaf Culture, and Professional Ethics, as well
as a myriad of professional development classes at ASL immersion events. I have worked
in the lab since 2011 and have worked with ASLO since its creation, and have held
both the marketing and president position.
Hi, I'm Kelcie Dixon and I'm from Henderson, KY, a small town just south of the Ohio
River. I became involved with ASL my Junior year at WKU and absolutely fell in love
with it. I enjoy the atmosphere, the people I meet, and what opportunities ASL will
give me in the future. I'm currently an ASL 3 student and working towards the new
minor that is offered here on campus.
My name is Lacey, I was born born in Owensboro, KY. I went to EKU for a semester then
moved to Bowling Green in the Spring of 2010! I am a senior here at WKU majoring in
Elementary Education. After graduating, I’m hoping to live in the amazing city of
I am deaf with a cochlear implant but never learned sign language until I took ASL
I two years ago. I took it because it sounded fun and it would meet my foreign language
requirements. I fell in love with it and kept taking more sign language classes! So
far I've taken ASL I, II, III, IV, Fingerspelling, and Deaf Culture/History.
I will be working in the ASL Lab this year and am excited to be able to help the students
practice ASL.I’ll also be at most of the Deaf Culture Events, so I hope to see you
all around! We always have fun at the events with signing and laughing!
If you need any help, have any questions, or just want to hang out and sign, my email
address is in the link above this.
First off, I want to say thank you for visiting our website and showing interest in
ASL. It is a beautiful and rewarding language (not to mention, ooodles of F.U.N.).
If you have any questions please shoot me an email with the link above; I would love
to be of assistance to you!!
And now, I'd like to say, my name is Holly. You may also hear HollyBean (as one word).
Why, you ask? I shall enlighten you: In my first ASL class I introduced myself as,
"Holly Bean, like a greenbean." This is because most people do not believe the Bean
part of my name. They try to make it anything but Bean. Therefore, I am HollyBean
(one word). However, I do go by just Holly. :)
I am from Tompkinsville, KY and moved to Bowling Green in 2009. This year I am a senior
acquiring the Extended Psychology Major and our NEW American Sign Language Studies
Minor *insert cheers here*. Following graduation in the Spring, I plan to pursue my
Masters in Clinical Psychology to work with disabled and underprivileged children.
AND now, drum roll please... I am going to tell you why I joined ASL! YAY!
I joined ASL for three reasons:
- It completed my foreign language requirement.
- I loved the language.
- I thought I knew it all because I knew my alphabet! haha
Honestly though, if you would have asked me two years ago if I thought I would be
this far along with ASL, I would have laughed. I still remember that first day of
class. It was terrifying and ultimately super exciting. I did not plan to pursue past
ASL II, yet ASL sunk its hooks in me and I have been on the line ever since. So far
I have completed ASL I, II, III, IV, and Fingerspelling. I am enrolled in Deaf Culture
this semester and will be taking the elective in the Spring! WKU's ASLO has become,
very much, my home away from home. I wish to share my love for ASL with all. I hope
one day everyone can get just a glimpse of ASL and can recognize just how beautiful
it truly is.
