Congratulations to Paris Granville, world language curriculum developer, for being awarded the Public Awareness Certificate by the Washington Association for Language Teaching.

According to the association, the certificate is given to a person who conducted activities or staged events which garnered publicity and created public awareness of the study of foreign languages.  Highly recognized world language fairs, community speakers’ bureaus, radio and television ads, media stories concerning school programs, and other events aimed at increasing the exposure of second language study to the general populace are examples of the types of activities which the recipient of this award has initiated.

Granville was recognized at an awards reception on Oct. 14 in Portland.
