We are pleased to announce that Madelyn Jones-Cressey, a Junior, has been selected as the first recipient of the 826 Enrichment Fund Award. Madelyn will receive a $250 grant to help her attend the Concordia Japanese Language Camp this summer as she pursues her goal of becoming fluent in Japanese and knowledgeable about Japanese Culture. She is considering a career as a language translator and is thrilled to have the chance to experience language and cultural immersion.
