2014 AATSP-VA Scholarship Recipients
The recipients of the 2014 scholarships have been selected.
Alex Shourds, a teacher at Powhatan School in Boyce will be attending a university in Spain for a three-week language and culture course. When she returns, she will have many lessons for her students based on her courses and experiences while in Spain. We look forward to hearing about those lessons at FLAVA in September, where Alex will share her ideas with us. Also, she will publish an article in our semi-annual Boletín and a photo essay will be posted on our website. ¡Enhorabuena, Alex!
