In Memory

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Herman Bostick. Dr. Bostick was a SCOLT founder and the first Executive Secretary of the organization. He offered consistent support for SCOLT over the years. Dr. Bostick donated funding for the Bostick Award, which provides two new language teachers the opportunity to attend the SCOLT conference for free each year. He was instrumental in his work with language education in Georgia, in addition to his important roles with SCOLT and FLAG. Dr. Bostick’s contributions to SCOLT and to language education are incalculable. He will be sorely missed. Dr. Bostick’s obituary can be found here. The SCOLT Board offers sincere condolences to the Bostick family.

Addressing Issues of Social Justice

In light of recent events, the SCOLT Board of Directors reiterates the statement published in June, 2021. We stand in solidarity with other organizations in condemning the systemic inequalities in our country. Racism, bigotry, and white supremacy have no place in our world, and we vow to do our part to help eradicate these hateful ideologies.

As world language educators, we are dedicated to equality, inclusion, and  diversity. It is our responsibility to create a safe, supportive, and open classroom environment in which students learn to embrace the diversity of our world and respect our differences. We must help future generations develop world views that value and respect not only our similarities, but also our differences.

SCOLT encourages all teachers to be intentional and reflective in addressing issues of social justice. We are committed to helping teachers make a difference in the lives of their students. As such, we recommend these resources. Also, please see SCOLT’s recorded webinar on this topic.
