University of Notre Dame students Mary Kathryn Eilert, Andrew Stephen Grose and Lucy Xian Jones will receive state recognition. They have been selected as one of the recipients of the 2017 Indiana Outstanding College Student of Spanish/Portuguese Award by the Indiana Chapter of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese . They really deserve this recognition. Their outstanding academic record, exceptional interest for the Iberoamerican/Brazilian culture, exemplary community service, remarkable overseas experience and astonishing passion for Spanish and Portuguese were evident in the nominations presented by professors Rachel Parroquin, Marisel Moreno, Tatiana Botero, Marcio Bahia, Sandra M Texeira, Maria Rosa Olivera-Williams and Jimena Holguin.

The committee was so impressed that 7 professors were involved in all the nomination process what shows the great appreciation you all have for these students.

The Award Ceremony will take place on Saturday, November 4th at 10am at the Sheraton Hotel Indianapolis (Keystone Crossing, Suite 16, Second Floor) during the AATSP Business Meeting that is part of the Indiana Foreign Language Teachers Association Conference (www.iflta.org). 

Felicitaciones de nuevo! It is an honor for AATSP Indiana to have such brilliant students from University of Notre Dame in our ceremony where we recognize the best students and best Spanish/Portuguese teachers in the State of Indiana.
