Greg Pollock

Age: 20

Residence: Rochester, N.Y., formerly of Wexford

Family: Father, Sanford Pollock; mother, Anne Toland

Occupation: He is a student at Rochester Institute of Technology's National Technical Institute for the Deaf.

Background: Pollock was born deaf. He is a 2007 graduate of North Allegheny High School. He is pursuing a degree in professional technical communications and is NTID's Student Congress president. Pollock hopes to get a job in project management.

Noteworthy: Pollock was recently named a student ambassador at the institute. Only 19 students have been selected as ambassadors since the program was started two years ago. Pollock is featured on the school's Web site, where he explains why he attends the school and gives advice to those considering enrolling there.

Quote: "Only four students get selected to be student ambassadors, and it really is an honor to hold this position. As an ambassador ... I hope to be a supporting figure in other students' lives, and remind them how important it is to remain dedicated to their education."
