A recognition ceremony was held in Haiti for the top performers in the spring 2011 session of THE SPARK of Le Flambeau language exchange program. This on-line forum, engaging classmates in Haiti and in the U.S., launched in January 2011 and ran for eleven weeks. Classmates advanced in their English/French fluency and technology skills.
The ceremony was the culmination of eleven weeks of language and technology learning. As the THE SPARK of Le Flambeau rules required, students in the U.S. voted for classmates in Haiti. Voting results were reviewed and approved by the English Grader, Ms. Fallahay, who volunteered her time throughout the entire semester. Youth leader Ruchama Charles, a past recipient of the top award and the first THE SPARK of Le Flambeau student to receive a Le Flambeau Foundation scholarship, assisted with the award presentations.
The program consisted of remarks from Foundation president Mr. Jean St.Lot-Gervais, the presentation of the awards, and the added prize give-aways of French/English dictionaries donated by our English Grader, Ms. Fallahay. The ceremony took place in June at Visa Lodge Hotel in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. For all of the hard work that made this possible, an extra warm Thank You is extended to Superviseur Mdme Lochet, English Grader Ms. Fallahay, Superviseur Mdme Jacquart, youth leaders Schneider, Roxanne, Barbara and Isabel; and our IT support leader Ms. Tracy Doome.
Congratulations to all!
