"Seeing is Belizing" Lecture at AASU
Savannah, GA--Formerly known as British Honduras, the relatively new Central American country of Belize is a nation of great diversity in its people, its geography, and its history.
Belize is emerging from a colonial past into an independent present, and its future rests heavily on the educational opportunities provided for its youth. Armstrong Atlantic State University professors Susan White, special education, and Janet Stone, history, will present "Seeing is Belizing" September 19.
The presentation will focus on a trip the lecturers took to Belize for the particular purpose of visiting its students and schools.

Guests will be treated with a "taste" of Belize following the lecture, which will begin at 12:15 P.M. in room 156 of AASU's University Hall. It is free and open to the public.
The lecture is part of the 2001-2002 Robert Ingram Strozier Faculty Lecture Series. This series is provided as a forum for Armstrong Atlantics teachers to report on original research, investigate subjects of special interests, and present classroom lecture topics that deserve a wider audience. The series also offers an opportunity for members of the local community to discover and share the assets of the university that lie beyond the classroom.
