Fuentes celebrates fifth birthday

Isabel Marie Fuentes celebrated her birthday on Friday, Sept. 21.

Family and friends were on hand to celebrate the special occasion.

Isabel's favorite gift was a porcelain doll given to her by her dad.

She was born on Sept. 21, 1996 and is the daughter of Eduardo Fuentes, Sr. and Estela Barron.

Paternal grandparents are Santiago and Mary Fuentes of Pecos.

OC instructor to represent Texas

Odessa College Adult Basic Education coordinator David Heath was among three educators selected to represent Texas at the National Symposium on Adult ESL (English as a Second Language) Literacy Research and Practice, held Sept. 5-8, in Washington, D.C., at the Smithsonian Institution.

"David has worked very hard on the Odessa College ESL program over the years," said John Tucker, OC director of Adult Basic Education. "He is well known and highly regarded around the state," he said.

Heath was nominated to attend by Tucker and was selected by the Division of Adult and Community Education of the Texas Education Agency.

Tucker added that Heath's selection was based on statewide recognition of his leadership and dedication to the adult ESL population of Texas.

The symposium examined current issues in adult ESL instruction and program administration, including recent research and its implications for practice. Attendees also participated in International Literacy Day activities and the National Book Festival sponsored by the Office of the First Lady in cooperation with the Library of Congress.

Heath has taught at OC since 1988 where he also is lead ESOL instructor (English for Speakers of Other Languages).

Films, audio-visual materials available

Films and other audio-visual materials available to schools through Region 18 Education Service Center may be requested for preview by parents and other interested adults during a one-day review session set for Oct. 25. The session is scheduled from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., at the Center, which is located at 2811 LaForce Blvd., Midland International Airport.

Parents and other citizens interested in requesting preview of particular films from the collection maintained at the Service Center should notify the center at least five days in advance so the staff will have time to check on the availability of the films and set up preview rooms. In the event a film is not available on the date requested, the person making the request will be given a date on which it may be seen.

Persons wishing to request preview of the films may call Pam Winn, Media Supervisor of the Education Service Center, at 915-567-3260.

The name of the films desired and the approximate time the person will arrive at the center should be given to Mrs. Winn.
