Hutchison world language students participated in the 2023 U of M Language Fair, sponsored by The University of Memphis Department of World Languages and Literatures. Demonstrating their knowledge of Spanish and Chinese, Hutchison had a total of 21 students win awards at the fair.
The theme of the fair was “Connecting Communities Through Language.” Students could choose from a variety of competitions in different categories to showcase their creativity and capability in the target language of their current world language class.
