You may be interested to know that I have been awarded a second Fulbright. I will be a Fulbright Scholar in 2016-2017 in the U.K.  Here is the website with my information in case you are interested. 

This is a Fulbright Scholarship for research.  My scholarship in 2009-2010 was a teaching scholarship to Rwanda where I worked with pre-service English language teachers at the teacher training college in Kigali, Rwanda.

I served in the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire) from 1973-1975 and Rwanda from 1980-1981.

Please give my greetings to everyone.

William Eberts, Jr. writes:
I really enjoyed myself at the Manor College Inauguration of 9th President Jonathan Peri, a very enthusiastic individual who will take the college to new heights. Channel 6 Action News was even there.

It was a day I will not forget. When they called everyone to line up for the processional, the first name they called was Moravian College because we were the oldest college represented. That really meant a lot to me. All in all it was a great day to be a Moravian College Alumnus.

Nanette Paden Muth retired from teaching 35 years in the Bethlehem Area School District on June 11, 2011.  She spent the last 26 years teaching kindergarten.  Nanette writes that she could not have chosen a better profession.  I loved teaching.  I was a mentor/co-op to many Moravian College elementary major students for approximately 20 years.  I continue to mentor elementary students at William Penn Elementary and read to preschoolers at my local library. During my retirement, I’ve been focusing on healthy eating and fitness.  I enjoy taking Zumba and Yoga classes and staying active.  My husband, Martin, and I are presently vacationing for two months, January and February, all around Florida in our newly purchased RV.  We love it.  We’ve escaped the brutal winter at home.  Hopefully, we will see spring soon, after we arrive back home where we will enjoy our Koi fish ponds and gardening.

They and other team members of the Bethlehem Jeffs Gold team cheered the U.S. on as they tied England in a historic match.
