DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) — What started as a degree in accounting at the University of Louisville eventually led Kentucky School for the Deaf graduate Max Williamson back to Danville as an educator.

He said his goal was to own his own business, but he got involved within the deaf community as a volunteer.

He began working at the Sign Lab at University of Louisville, which was through Eastern Kentucky University, as a satellite campus.

He graduated from U of L in 2010 and decided to pursue a master's degree at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C.

There, he found a passion.

He now teaches at EKU's Richmond and Danville campuses and contributes via video conference at Murray State University.
