Graduations and Celebrations!
Last term, INTERLINK congratulated graduating students, bid farewell to departing students, and honored exceptional students. During the End-of-Term Ceremony, Dr. Brad Teague presented Rosa Flores with The Outstanding Student Award. The ceremony and luncheon afterwards took place at College Park Baptist Church. The next End-of-Term Ceremony will take place December 16, 2011, from 11:30am to 2:00pm in the Fellowship Hall of College Park Baptist Church. The ceremony will be followed by a potluck lunch.
We also had the INTERLINK Halloween Social last week. There were Karaoke performances by INTERLINK students and staff. The winner was Luning (Justin) Deng from China. Students were able to eat pizza, socialize with UNCG students and English-speaking community members, belt out some ballads, and see INTERLINK teacher, David Carlisle, dressed in costume. (See right). A good time was had by all!
This term, INTERLINK welcomed 28 new students from China, Cameroon, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Portugal, Korea, Venezuela, Egypt, Vietnam, Iraq, Ecuador, Taiwan, Mali, and Thailand. We hosted a welcome party for the incoming students in The Parlor of North Spencer Hall. We had icebreakers, games, and junk food to encourage the students to get to know one another. The event was very well attended. Anyone interested in becoming a conversation partner to an INTERLINK student should email Casey Thomas at email@example.com
