Lillie Westbrooks, a cashier at Washington University of St. Louis, is known for her commitment to excellent guest service in language spoken and signed.
Lillie’s talent surfaced when members of the International Catholic Deaf Association (ICDA) returned for a conference the second year in a row at WashU. Lillie astonished her colleagues when she began signing with conference members, as they had no idea she knew sign language. (Lillie started signing when she was 11 years old, to communicate with an uncle.) The following day, a group of conference attendees presented Lillie with a special rosary as a token of their appreciation.
