Graduates Made a Smart Life Choice

 


To the Editor:

How refreshing it is to read that two top 2019 graduates of my alma mater have at least some introductory Spanish language in their portfolios.

The bios of Valedictorian Rachel L. McCready and Class President Caden T. Hazenstab published in the Herald of June 20, 2019, remind me how shortsighted my generation was. Besides two years of Latin at Morrison Cove High and an excellent year of French in the first graduating class at Central High, I went on to minor in French at Catawba College, not once – way back then – considering that Spanish was the foreign tongue of choice in this hemisphere.

If Rachel, in medicine, and Caden, in business law, continue to develop their Spanish literacy, they will be far more influential members of American society in their prime but will, equally as important, be conversant with their next-door neighbors.
