Pearls of Wisdom: African and Caribbean Folktales

Mary Romney, a past member of the TESOL board, was recently given the following award. This news clip comes from a Quinebaug Valley Community College press release: Mary Romney Honored by Sandy Mawford - which we read in the TAP* newsletter.

On January 29th, board member Mary Romney was presented with the Martin Luther King Service Award by Eastern Connecticut State University. The award is presented yearly to three individuals who have a "commitment to the goals of an integrated society, leadership in a program serving the needs of a diverse community, or the planning and implementation of programs to broaden representation of underrepresented groups." Mary has worked as coordinator of academic support and ESL instructor at Quinebaug Valley Community College in Willimantic, Connecticut, for the past eleven years.

Beyond the contribution she makes to her community, Mary is a respected, veteran member of TAP (astute Newsletter readers should recognize her byline.) We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mary on her well-deserved award. Excellent work!

Her proud publishers join TAP and QVCC in congratulating Mary on her continuing great work.
