Convention Highlights

After a written test and interview in French before a panel of French and Belgian dignitaries, senior Emma Davis won a full scholarship to study in Belgium this summer.

Gabriel Bostick '22 was elected Regional President to serve the Baton Rouge area. He also competed in the French spelling bee, reaching the final round.

Reagan Courville '21 and Sydney Boudreaux '22 shared 1st place in the Creative Writing competition.

All of the students who participated in the convention proved to be great ambassadors, representing the French program and Dunham well. Toutes nos félicitations (congratulations) on an excellent showing.
