Junior Fellows: Citizenship Preparatory Course

The Junior Fellows kicked off their 5th annual “Citizenship Preparatory Course” this Monday.  We had about 17 immigrants attend (including some family members of the immigrants) from six different countries, and they appear to be a great group.

Three of the immigrants are SHSU students, two from different countries in Africa and one from Mexico.  Other immigrants are from Germany, China, and India.  We’re going to learn as much as we hope they learn.

This is a great program.  Over the past four years, we’ve worked with more than 80 immigrants from more than 20 countries.  Approximately a fourth of these immigrants earned their citizenship, some after attending three years in a row.  It’s great to see their dedication, and it’s a wonderful reminder about the privileges of citizenship.

Congratulations to Mr. Mahmood and his daughter, both of whom earned their citizenship. Congratulations!
