From the Chair

A note to thanks all of those who were involved in the Poetry Festival event this Saturday. We had a rainy morning with many events on campus happening at the same time, but you all ensured that the event was a success, and that all students, parents, and teachers who came left with a love for poetry, Spanish language and their own culture. We had 52 students reciting poetry in Spanish from grade K-to HS. Verses from Lorca, Alfonsina Storni, Neruda and Sor Juana were on the students lists, among many others.

Thanks to Jae Johnson, Delia Montesinos, Jocelly Meiners, Mina Ogando, Maria Luisa Echevarría and Celina Névarez for their wonderful organization, to Noel Meyer for planning all the classrooms, making the beautiful certificates, ordering trophies and to all the graduate students and faculty who volunteered as judges. To Mina and Delia, thanks for the amazing food, and for cleaning the space at BEN 2.102. This event is a tradition in our department and we hope to continue

Some of the HS teachers from Anderson and Westwood will be contacting us in the near future as they wish to bring some of their students to our classes.
