A message from Casola winner, Ms. Grace Montgomery of Chapman University

The Casola Prize will help me continue my Italian studies at Chapman University.  I also appreciate this opportunity because it has introduced me to a large network of Italian Culture Patrons.  As president of the Italian Club at Chapman, I hope to use my skills as a leader to continue fostering a social environment for students to explore Italian culture.  Learning the Italian language over the past two years has brought me closer to my heritage and ancestry, and I hope to bring that same experience to my peers.  In conclusion, I am ecstatic about continuing my education of the Italian language and culture and serving my fellow students as President of the Italian Club.  I hope one day to have a career in which I can use my language skills and cultural knowledge.  For now, I will focus on becoming more fluent through the abundant courses offered at Chapman.
