Our Admissions Committee meeting will start in 45 minutes, but I’m going to try to sneak in a blog post before I head over to the meeting room. I wanted to update you on news from some of our blog friends.
First, our student bloggers. They’re back on campus and I’ve been giving them a little time to settle into classes before I start cajoling them for posts. Meanwhile, if you weren’t in Guatemala City to hear it yourself, you might like to check out Roxanne’s latest TEDx talk.
Also making news — our friend Manjula. Trying to follow his comings and goings via Facebook, I see that he has spent an extended time in Sri Lanka generating support for Educate Lanka. At least one of the goals of his trip was to organize a charity “Walk for a Cause,” which took place last weekend. Along the way, he was interviewed in Sri Lanka’s Sunday Times, and also by Young Asia Television. (No translation available, but you’ll get the idea.)
Finally, and closer to where I’m sitting right now, our own Christine has made Fletcher news, in that she has been promoted to Admissions Coordinator. At the moment, she is wearing two different hats (her old one and her new one — both stylish, of course), but that leaves little time for writing Consult Christine posts. Once she settles into only one job at a time, she can start up writing again.
So that’s the round-up! And I’m off to the Admissions Committee meeting.
