Askey Foreign Languages Annual Scholarship
Thelma Askey (History, '70) believes that the world is increasingly interconnected, with economies inexorably linked, cultures projected, technologies absorbed, and ideas shared. There is now little possibility for isolation or insulation. Students in the US need to understand and embrace this reality and prepare themselves to engage effectively and successfully in an international marketplace with fewer and fewer walls. Language fluency is a tremendous asset no matter what course of study at TTU or profession you enter. Ms. Askey has lived and worked abroad, as well as traveled extensively throughout her career, and from this experience has learned the importance of language fluency (despite widespread knowledge of English) to business, cultural and personal relationships in the world of the future.
