Almost a year ago, on Friday October 8th, 2004 Jack Anderson, President of Audio Enhancement lost his life on a canoe trip down the Guadalupe River outside of Kerrville Texas. He touched the lives of many people he never knew. Upon learning of his death, Mr. I. N. Fehr of Dallas, was moved to contribute to his memory. On April 26, 2005 in conjunction with the Scott Haug Foundation, the first Jack Anderson Memorial Classroom Sound Field System was installed.
Diana Schonbergs first grade classroom at Bridlewood Elementary School in Flower Mound, Texas was chosen as the recipient in an effort to improve the signal to noise ratio for students with Attention Deficit Disorder, but also to allow Diana to hear her students better. Diana is hearing impaired, and has been having difficulty understanding the children. They now pass the microphone to one another so that she can easily understand their responses and questions.
The schools PTA was impressed at how easy the Audio Enhancement Sound Field system was to install, and report that the initial outcome has been very positive. As a result, the Flower Mound School System is seriously considering fund raising projects that would allow them to expand the amplified classroom concept to many more classrooms and schools.
The Scott Haug Foundation and Board Members wishes to express their sincere appreciation to all those involved in this pilot project.
Thanks Jack, for all youve done to further the education of our children.
