Memorial Service for Dr. Ellie Rosenfield at NTID

From an email announcement:

A memorial service for Ellie Rosenfield, former associate dean for student and academic services at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, is set for 3 p.m. Monday, April 19, in Panara Theater, Lyndon Baines Johnson Building. A reception will follow in Dyer Arts Center. Rosenfield passed away March 7.

Rosenfield spent nearly 35 years at RIT—first in the residence halls, then as coordinator of NTID’s First Year Experiences and finally, as NTID’s associate dean for student and academic services. She received many awards and recognitions including the Award of Excellence presented by the Deaf Professional Group at NTID. This award recognizes dedication, persistence and commitment to improving the quality of life for all deaf and hard-of-hearing people. She leaves behind a multitude of students, staff and faculty who were honored to work with her at NTID.
