From Kit Carpenter, International Studies Committee Chair
It’s an honor to announce that Oceana Merrick and Julian Olavegoya, speakers of Spanish, have been awarded GCC’s International Language and Culture Study Abroad Scholarships for the summer of 2011.
Oceana will study in Guatemala with an interest in indigenous languages and cultures. Julian will also study in Guatemala, and plans to do volunteer work to help local residents build homes and to work with animals in a nature preserve.
Stay tuned for their presentations in the fall… and students: think about applying next year! We plan to get the process started a little earlier next time around.
To President Pura and to Student Life Coordinator Missy Eich and the Student Senate, many thanks for making these trips possible!
