LPS Director of Implementation, Assessment, and International Initiatives, Amy Nichols, was honored to represent the University of Pennsylvania as a judge on China Central Television's (CCTV) Star of Outlook English Language Competition for the second year in a row. Along with representatives from College of William and Mary, Cornell University, University of Edinburgh, and Vanderbilt University, Nichols spent two days in preparation meetings and then two full days in the CCTV studio. Nichols noted that, once again, all of the high school and university contestants had impressive English language skills and a lot of courage. Her work with the other university representatives, along with the CCTV and Star of Outlook production staff and volunteers, resulted in another memorable and rewarding experience.
