Three 2013 graduates of East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania (ESU) have each received a prestigious scholarship from the Ministry of Education in Spain to serve as ambassadors of the North American language and culture. The students, Sara Czyz of Philadelphia (left) and Daniel Rosenberg of East Windsor, N.J. (right) will teach English to K-12 students in Spain from October 1, 2013 through May 31, 2014. (Missing from photo is Stacey Gray of Philadelphia, who will serve as the third ESU ambassador to Spain). Esther Daganzo-Cantens, Ph.D. (center), associate professor of Spanish in the ESU Department of Modern Languages, has organized ESU’s summer Study Abroad program in Spain, her native country.

Each of the students will work at a public school where they will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Spanish culture, perfect their Spanish-speaking skills, and form new and life-long friendships with Spanish colleagues and local residents. They will also have an opportunity to travel through Europe and become more globally oriented citizens.

All three students received degrees from ESU in Spanish. Additionally, Czyz received a degree in business management and Gray was awarded a degree in communication studies.
