Independence Student Earns Scholarship for Sign Language Performance

Apr 02, 2015

Most people think of American Sign Language as only involving the hands and arms, but Isabella Icenogle’s interpretation of the song "He Is With You" by Mandisa proves it can also involve the entire body.

Icenogle, a junior at Independence High School, won a $2,000 scholarship for her performance/interpretation through a fine arts contest sponsored by a faith-based organization. She will now advance to the national competition in April and have the opportunity to win additional scholarships.

Icenogle was selected 4th out of 40 ASL students in the region and received a Superior Rating. Check out a video of her performance below.
