David Stroud has found gainful employment teaching high school students! David (BSE, May 2011) will be teaching 8th grade through 12th grade English at Union Star High School, which is about twenty miles north of St. Joseph.
He thanks his many professors who have "helped him develop the tools and knowledge to become an effective English teacher in areas he needed the most help," but adds that "if any professor should desire to reach me and offer me words of wisdom, tips, anything really, he or she can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org ." We'll probaby see David at a Prairie Lands Writing Project soon!
Congratulations, David! Go, Trojans!

On May 13th, 2012 (Mother's Day) eight students and their Spanish professor (me) left from Kansas City, MO to Houston. At Houston airport we met with the other group of MWSU students, from nursing, headed to Costa Rica for a one-week Internship. We took the same plane, all wearing our gray shirts from MWSU.
An article about the trip will appear in Western Magazine in early September.
In recent years students studying Spanish have gone on summer trips to Argentina, Spain, and Mexico. For more information about studying foreign languages and study abroad, see our foreign languages website.
