ASCC Graduate Banquet Celebrate Scholastic Achievement
The Division of Student Services at the American Samoa Community College (ASCC) holds its Graduate Banquet each semester several days prior to the official Commencement Ceremony. The Banquet gives the pending graduates an opportunity to enjoy a social occasion where members of their class receive recognition for outstanding scholastic achievements. The fall 2014 Banquet took place this past Wednesday, December 10th, at Seafood Restaurant, and highlighted the accomplishments of the most recent group of young men and women transitioning from ASCC into the next phase of their academic or professional careers.
ASCC Music Instructor Published in NZ Literary Journal
Poe Mageo, music instructor at the American Samoa Community College (ASCC), can now add “published author” to his already impressive list of credentials, after having a short fiction piece published in SPAN 64: Journal of the South Pacific Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies. An academic publication which focuses on postcolonial, neocolonial and diaspora literature in English, mostly from the British Commonwealth nations, SPAN is issued biannually by SPACLALS, a sub-group of the Association for Commonwealth Language and Literature Studies. Widely referenced by literary scholars for its critical articles and book reviews on postcolonial literature of the South Pacific, a typical edition of SPAN will contain eight to ten scholarly articles, one or two book reviews, and a wide selection of poetry and fiction.
