enough pencils to give each
person one.




This semester, we started a new ELI
tradition. We nominated and
interviewed students for the 2 ELI
Scholarships earlier than we used to.
This change was made in order to give
scholarship winners time enough to
know whether or not they could accept.
The process for this semester was
concluded this past Friday.

So, please congratulate Modibo Keita,
recipient of the Jayne C. Harder
Scholarship, and Heajin Lee, recipient
oftheJC Casagrande Peace
Scholarship.
