SARATOGA SPRINGS — Emma Thompson, of the Graduate Class of 2013, has been awarded the prestigious Laziali nel Mondo scholarship in the amount of $1,000.

The Laziali nel Mondo Association of the Capital District is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the study of the Italian language and culture throughout the world. Professor Cesare Maniccia, the vice president of this internationally recognized organization, reviewed Emma’s winning essay in which she tells of her deep desire to learn Italian so that she could be close to her grandfather.

Emma has taken all three levels of Conversational Italian taught by Lucia Bianchi. This fall, she plans to continue her studies of Italian at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan. She will be majoring in fashion merchandising and minoring in Italian. During her third year at FIT, she will be studying in Firenze, Italia.
