This 2009 graduate is grateful to the Bonner Scholars program for the chance to first study abroad.
Lindsay Pulfer Langett teaches French at Jefferson-Forest High School in Bedford County, teaching French II, III, IV and AP classes “while advocating for the cultural importance of language study in a secondary language.”
“My experience at Emory & Henry, especially as a Bonner scholar, prepared me for my future career and adult life. Volunteering taught me the importance of interacting with the community. With the assistance of Bonner, I was able to go to France for the first time the summer after my Freshman year to do volunteer work. This opened my eyes to international travel and led me toward study abroad. When I was ready to take on that adventure, administration permitted me to personalize my own experience by allowing me to choose my own study abroad program and provided me with the accommodations that I needed. Upon returning to campus, my education classes and student teaching experience were instrumental in preparing me for my career. I am forever grateful for Emory & Henry!”
