Czech Educational Foundation of Texas celebrates 18th anniversary
Reveille IX made an appearance at Oct. 21's Czech Education Foundation fellowship anniversary celebration. Special appearances were also made by Sara Armor, the 2006 Miss Czech-Slovak USA queen, and Jana Riley, the 2001 Miss Texas-Czech Slovak Queen independent representative.
The Czech Educational Foundation of Texas held an 18th anniversary celebration for the William J. Hlavinka Fellowship at Texas A&M University's College of Liberal Arts on Oct. 21. The CEFT William J. Hlavinka Fellowship at Texas A&M is designed to bring advanced graduate students from two Moravian universities to Texas A&M, establish Czech language classes in the Bryan-College Station area for members of the public, provide Czech-to-English translation services for the Texas Czech community, provide assistance to Czech-American historical and cultural groups in Texas and encourage cultural and educational ties between the state of Texas and the Czech Republic.
The current fellow is Jan Beneš from Masaryk University. The endowment is funded by members of the Hlavinka family with support from other donors.
The anniversary celebration included performances by an ensemble from the Texas A&M Century Singers and Kovanda's Czech Band from Houston, and Henry Machichek of the Praha Brothers Band and his wife, Susan Machichek. Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp was the event's keynote speaker.
