USHA Convention

  Britten is this year’s recipient of the USHA Communication Ambassador Award. This award is given to someone who has participated in Speech/Language/Hearing services over the course of the year and has inspired others with their strength, perseverance, and success.    -Lisa Millman
    What a great honor this is for Britten to represent the profession that has helped him so much in his recovery. He had the opportunity to speak at their convention.


  1. Schenk Family,
    I wish there was a way to private message you, but this will have to do. What do you say to a beautiful speech like that? Thank you. Thank you for your faith. Thank you for showing us that miracles have not ceased. Brady and I have followed your blog with prayerful hearts and fond memories. May the Lord continue to bless your family and maybe someday we will meet again.
    With Love,
    Brady and Liz Yost

  2. I could watch this over and over. Britten's recovery has been truly and indisputably miraculous! It is wonderful to be able to witness this. Thanks for sharing. Keep working hard, Britten! You are a wonderful spokesperson for the Utah Speech and Hearing Association! Your attitude is amazing. Love to see your smile, hear your enthusiasm, and witness your gratitude to family, friends, and God!
    Love you,

  3. Dear Britten, Your story is amazing! I have also been following your journey during this year. I said many prayers for you and your family during the recovery. I cried and laughed along with your Mom when I would read the updates. Seeing you speak so eloquently and with so much compassion for others is absolutely amazing. I have the saying "Attitude is Everything" hanging in my home also, you are the greatest example of the kind of person we should follow to be happy in life! I have two missionaries serving at this time also so we missionary moms are a strong force for good in the world, especially when the power of prayer comes into play. You are a walking miracle and I would love to meet you someday. Take care and keep up the wonderful work.
    Kari CA.

  4. Britt,
    This is amazing! I literally had to wipe the tears away as I watched it. I remember your mom telling us that story in the locker room. She's a great lady, and you're an amazing guy. Thanks for the reminder of what's really important! You and your family are great examples.

    Take care!

    (*Side note, I couldn't help but think of "TWITA" during this for some reason. Good times!)
