Jeffrey Blair reports that he was awarded a Distinguished Fulbright Award in Teaching to spend the first three and a half months of 2010 doing educational research in Cape Town, South Africa. A summer 2008 trip he took to South Africa was full of CC connections: “My wife (also a teacher) and I went to the Cape Town area with a Seattlebased program, Bridges to Understanding, that brings digital storytelling resources to school sites around the world. When we arrived at our school site, our photography instructor turned out to be Josh Schachter ’93. After this program and experience, we went to a game reserve where, in a safari truck, we found ourselves seated with Rob Leigh ’87 and his family. We enjoyed becoming reacquainted and having our families meet. All in all, quite a serendipitous and remote reconnecting!”
