Help Nigel

Remember we told you about Nigel Griffin? He won the Spanish Honors Society award, one of 11 to win such an award? Well Nigel has his prize trip to Mexico, but the prize didn’t cover airfare from here to the gateway city. We have to help cover almost $1500 of expenses. WSTA is going to contribute Nigel’s airfare to Chicago. We are asking someone or some company to come forward to help put Nigel over the top. This is a high honor for Nigel. We need to send one of our best to his proper rewards.
