To promote and advance the interest of Alumni of the Association and the quality of education for the students of Florida School for the Deaf.
Our goal is to help all deaf/hard of hearing alumni who attended or graduated from the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind (FSDB) stay in touch with their classmates and friends, share the latest news from FSDB, and stay connected with FSDB through alumni involvement and support.
Alumni-related announcements, news and event updates will be shared as these arise. We hope you find our online resources to be useful and that these help you stay connected with one another and with FSDB

Hello everyone,


I am sending this email to past members and current members, I hope this email finds you all doing well.  I know it has been a little over a year since you all have heard from me.  Since COVID hit we have not been able to have our General meeting in person.  FSDB is opening campus this year and we will be able to have our meeting this year.  We are thrilled.  We have a lot of work ahead, we do need to work on raising our funds for the senior scholarship fund and increase our membership numbers again.  In order for our organization to continue to function we need to grow and have the means to stay active.  Due to COVID our numbers have dropped.  Our organization is a non-profit organization and we do have our 501 3c endorsement.  Please help us support our school. We alumnus need to stay strong and support our school.  


I have included our membership form in this email. Please join us to keep our Alumni organization running, you have become a member or make a donation to support our cause.  You can complete this form and mail your  payment with a check or money order.  If you would like to pay electronically please email me at, please include your text phone number in the email.   I can send you an invoice and you can pay with your debit card or credit card. 


Just to let everyone know we will be having our Homecoming game on September 10th.  We are playing against Maryland School for the Deaf at 6 pm.  We are so looking forward to seeing our boys play.  FSDAA’s General meeting will start  at 11 am in Knowles hall and we will have some light refreshments. Also,  Hall of Fame will be having their first celebration presenting awards to honor several people after our meeting.   Please check out our FB page and our website as well.  Several Blogs have been posted.
