CONGRATULATIONS YACS CLASS OF 2012!
2011-2012 has proven to be another great year for YACS. During Fall Quarter, we held a BYOC (build-your-own-costume) event to celebrate Halloween. Winter Quarter was a particularly busy quarter for us. Events included a Make Your Own Valentine Card fundraiser in which all proceeds went towards a book donation for Books Beyond Bars. We also hosted a visit from Dr. Claudette S McLinn. Claudette spoke to us about the multicultural experience in children’s literature. Also during winter quarter, YACS had the opportunity to meet with and listen to children’s author and illustrator, Allen Say, at the 2012 Frances Clarke Sayers Lecture. During spring, YACS teamed up with the Department of Near Eastern Studies to host author, Anushka Ravishankar, otherwise known as “The Indian Dr. Seuss.”
We capped the year off with a final meeting and a congraduation graffiti wall to say goodbye to the second years.
2011-2012 was great . . . and the class of 2012 will be missed. We thank you for all your advice and good times . . . but 2012-2013 . . . here we come! Get ready for another great year with YACS =) !
