Graduates Receive French Assistantships

Nazareth College is pleased to announce that two of its graduating seniors were selected to receive French Government English Teaching Assistantships for the upcoming academic year. Emily Alexander of Montgomery, N.Y. and Abraham Gerson of Charlotte, V.T., will be in various parts of France teaching English to high school and middle school students. These competitive assistantships give students a chance to gain experience in their field and improve their language skills as well as foster cross-cultural understanding.

Gerson will be teaching in the vicinity of Rennes, France. He is a French major and communication and rhetoric minor. After his assistantship in France, Gerson will be attending Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications where he will pursue a master’s degree in broadcast journalism.

Alexander, a French major and English literature minor, will be teaching in the vicinity of Strasbourg, France.
