The members of DEF LEPPARD met the Arkansas School For The Deaf’s football team on Wednesday, May 11 when the band came to Central Arkansas for a concert in Little Rock.

Nearly 1,500 people signed an online petition to get DEF LEPPARD to take a photo in front of the Arkansas School For The Deaf’s football scoreboard.

The school’s mascot is the leopard, making their team the Deaf Leopards.

Four students from the school met with members of DEF LEPPARD backstage and took a photo with the band in front of the scoreboard replica.

Stacey Tatera, spokesman for the Arkansas School For The Deaf, told ArkansasOnline: “We’re so proud for anyone to shine a light on our school, on deaf education and on the work we do here.”

The Arkansas School For The Deaf has reportedly used the name Leopards since at least 1941, long before the formation of DEF LEPPARD more than thirty years later.
