The GHID Barbara Lee Scholarship, is named in honor of a Houston area interpreter who was one of the first members of our organization. She was a CODA and the mother of Rita Lee Wedgeworth and Mike Lee. Barbara passionately supported and witnessed students becoming interpreters and always encouraged them to continue their professional growth. She was an advocate in making sure quality interpreter services were provided to the deaf community.  She taught ASL classes at Lee College in Baytown. Later she received her Master’s degree in Psychology and worked specifically with Deaf consumers providing individual counseling and mental health services. The Barbara Lee Scholarship is set up to assist both ITP students and professional interpreters’ needs to find success in the interpreting field. Interested in giving back?
