American Fulbrighters Retreat to Ain Sukna
On May 10-12 U.S. the Commission hosted its annual year-end conference for U.S. Fulbrighters. Convened in Ain Sukna, the retreat heard American Fulbright Scholars share the results of their lecturing and research experiences. “… wonderful just to have a relaxing and enjoyable setting in order to talk with the other Fulbrighters before we part ways,” said one Fulbrighter. “… a very meaningful and well-planned ending to a wonderful grant period.” A highlight of the weekend was a visit to Saint Anthony’s Monastery conducted by the Commission’s good friend, Father Maximous Elantony. “Father Maximous’ presentation was truly exceptional,” one Fulbright noted. Others remarked: “the monastery visit was amazing … thrilled to be part of it and grateful to Fulbright for arranging it.” Our thanks to Father Maximous for helping to bring AY2011-2012 to a fruitful conclusion.
