KITA would like to congratulate founding board member and current Vice President and Program Committee chair Lynn Fors for being given the Amici Linguarum (Friend of Languages) Award by the Kentucky World Language Association.
This award is presented to an individual or organization not directly involved in the teaching of world languages that has made a significant contribution to our society through their efforts to increase and promulgate both a love and appreciation for, as well as the ability to communicate in a world language among all citizens in the community, the state, and ultimately the country.
In addition to her language access advocacy work, Lynn is an entrepreneur who recently founded Access Language Services. Check out her website and latest blog post here.
