Lottery Contributions Help Marie Katzenbach School for the Deaf

Carole Hedinger, New Jersey Lottery Executive Director, joins Dr. Angel Ramos, Superintendent, Marie Katzenbach School for the Deaf on a tour of the school's campus and to meet with some of its elementary and high school students. The Marie Katzenbach School has been serving the needs of deaf and hard-of-hearing children for more than 100 years. The New Jersey Lottery provides yearly funding to the Katzenbach School through state contributions and has been doing so since 1981. The Lottery provided $1.7 million to the school in Fiscal Year 2011 which aided in fulfilling its mission.
