David Schwab Alumni Award

TLC presented Shayna Unger with the 2023 David Schwab Alumni Award. In 2015, Shayna, with her partner Scott Lehmann, scaled Mount Kilimanjaro. In 2020, they became the first all-deaf team to summit Aconcagua in South America. In 2021, they climbed Denali, becoming the first all-deaf team to reach the summit of North America’s tallest mountain. And if that were not enough, in 2023, Shayna and Scott reached the top of Mount Everest, making remarkable history as only the third and fourth Deaf people to summit Mount Everest. Shayna is the first Deaf woman - ever, to accomplish such an extraordinary feat.

During the Alumni Brunch, a video from Shayna was shown, expressing her gratitude for the award, and reminding the audience that perseverance and passion is so important during your life journey. Her parents accepted the award in person, on Shayna's behalf.
