a tweet about Nebraska School for the Deaf

Nebraska School for the Deaf, closed in 1998.  I want to visit the
museum at the school site this summer to see if they have 1931
state basketball championship trophy

note:

good question!

random deafsports talk

With respect to Nebraska School for the Deaf
(above tweet), many championship trophies
from other clubs and schools are either
lost, misplaced or damaged.

We do not have a national Deaf Athletic
Hall of Fame that would preserve these
trophies!
