Shane Hass ’10 is the recipient of a scholarship to study in Spain during summer 2009. Spanish Teacher Elizabeth Hudson obtained the scholarship through her activities in the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP). Ms. Hudson has served on the board of the García Lorca Chapter of the AATSP for a number of years and was one of two teachers nationwide who received the scholarship at the American Council of Teachers of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) Convention held in Orlando last fall. The scholarship is from Eduespaña through the Embassy of Spain.
Hass will study at the International House of Madrid for three weeks starting in June. The scholarship includes room, board, tuition and a stipend for air travel. Hass will prepare for the Advanced Placement Spanish Language Exam and learn more about his host country. He is the son of Susan and Frank Hass of Veazie and is a student in Brenda LoPotro’s Honors Spanish IV class this year.
