We hope that after learning about the massive financial impact that Northeast Pensacola Sertoma has had on northwest Florida since its founding in 1988, you will be moved to inquire how you might become a part of this dynamic organization.
The first Audiology Clinic in the Escambia School District was built in 1981 and was located in a converted temporary classroom at West Pensacola Elementary School. This hearing test facility provides free services to over 90 schools and special centers. On average, the clinic evaluates 1000 students per year and also provides numerous services, such as over 7000 hearing screening and equipment to students and their teachers in their respective schools across the district. Due to the growth in both clients and employees served, the clinic had outgrown its’ current location and there was no room for expansion or renovation.
Northeast Pensacola Sertoma approached the Escambia School board with a first of its kind idea for a partnership. NE Sertoma proposed building a new stand-alone hearing test facility to be built on the campus of Holm Elementary, Workman Middle & Washington HS. This new location would be more centrally located in the county and adjoins 2 other schools (Workman Middle and Washington High). The majority of the hearing impaired students in this district attend one of these 3 schools. Hearing screening, complete hearing tests, hearing aid tests, assisting listening devices, and consultants would be more readily available to students and their teachers due to the new location. Hearing tests will be performed in a timelier manner and student productivity will increase. The audiologists will also save time, travel, and money by being on the same campus as their hearing impaired students.
This highly cooperative venture between the School District of Escambia County and Northeast Sertoma Club expressed a concern of the community and the willingness to work together for the benefit of our children’s hearing needs. The clinic was completed in the fall of 2010 and has improved the lives of hundreds of students each year by enhancing the quality of hearing services in this area by building the new Audiology Clinic of Escambia School District.
