Mayor plants bush, gives proclamation to institute

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer rolled up his sleeves to do some landscaping at a school on Wednesday.

Fischer helped plant a butterfly bush at Heuser Hearing and Language Academy.

The children who attend Heuser are either deaf or hard of hearing. The bush is meant to be a symbol for students who may struggle to speak or hear, but emerge as beautiful butterflies.

During his visit the children gave Fischer a handmade gift.

Fischer also gave proclamation to the Heuser Hearing Institute, which also serves adults, in honor of May being better hearing and speech month.
