Fulton County Spanish Teacher Receives SCOLT Leadership Award
Ms. Tavane Moore of Sandtown Middle School in Fulton County was honored with the SCOLT Leadership Award at the annual conference in March 2021. The SCOLT Leadership Award is given for K-12 educators who have demonstrated excellence in language teaching through service to the school and community, active participation in SCOLT, and leadership and advocacy at the local, state, regional and/or national level. Ms. Moore was chosen from a wide field of nominees from across the region because of her dedication to her long-time career as a Spanish teacher, her ongoing advocacy of world languages opportunities for her students, and her long history of presenting at state, regional and national conferences. One of Ms. Moore’s references indicated Ms. Moore is, without question, one of the most outstanding teachers and facilitators I have witnessed in my nineteen years of teaching. FLAG congratulates Ms. Moore and thanks her for her many years of membership and service to FLAG!
IIt is with profound sadness that the Foreign Language Association of Georgia announces the passing of our first president Dr. Herman Bostick.
Dr. Bostick’s legacy of service, kindness and wisdom touched so many educators, and through them, many students in the state of Georgia.
We remember fondly the many stories he shared with us. Listening to him speak was a lesson in life. His pioneering efforts and forward vision are the foundation upon which this organization was built. As hard as it is to accept the news of his passing, it is consoling to recognize that Dr. Bostick’s legacy lives on. We are all better citizens of the world for having known and worked with him.

Recipients should exemplify qualities which Charles himself brought to teaching and the profession, namely a “sparkling enthusiasm for scholarship, education, and the Humanities.” Ms. Patrick was recognized for her innovative teaching practices, including interdisciplinary instruction and authentic, real life learning opportunities for all students. Please join us in congratulating Miriam Patrick on this outstanding achievement.
