]A student tries her hand at the craft of woodturning. Beginning in seventh grade, students at St. Rita School for the Deaf can participate in woodturning classes and projects, thanks to Ralph Hirshberg of the Ohio Valley Woodturner’s Guild, who has been teaching woodturning at the Cincinnati school for four years. The only school of its kind in the nation, St. Rita’s offers day and residential programs for deaf children and children who cannot speak because of a variety of medical conditions. It celebrates its centennial this year.
