The annual essay contest of the American Association of Teachers of French yielded three winners this year.  In a near-sweep, students from Samford, protégés of Dr. Heather West, captured the first and second places.  Congratulations to Catherine Moore (first) and Gabi Kim (second).

 The world is better because Samford students learn the world's languages.
