Aleyda Garcia has been chosen as Student of the Month for November.

Aleyda moved here from Mexico in May 2015 and immediately enrolled at FSAEC. In Mexico, she worked as an accountant. She is waiting to get a job because she feels it is important to learn English first. She believes that if she starts working, she will never learn English. She prays every day to learn English. 

She lives here with her husband and one step-son, who is 12. She helps him with school work, but usually he helps her more!  

Ms. Kennedy chose Aleyda for Student of the Month because of her hard work and dedication to learning English. Aleyda is very shy and humble, so it was a challenge to get her to accept this award.


There will be no day or night classes on Wednesday and Thursday, November 2 and 3. Classes will resume on Monday, November 7.

Natalia Shlyupikova is the October Student of the Month.  Natalia is in her second year of ESL classes at the AEC where she studies from 8:00 – 12: 25 four days a week.  She comes to class prepared and ready to learn every day.  She is friendly and well-liked by all her classmates. 

Natalia and her husband Yury came to the United States from Russia two years ago to be near their daughter and grandchildren.  They are from a beautiful city in Russia called Cheboksary. It is located on the Volga River about 10 hours east of Moscow.  Natalia is retired now, but she worked as a physician in Russia for 45 years. Natalia stays active, and she and her family enjoy doing outdoor activities together.  In Russia, they went cross-country skiing, hiking, and camping.  Since she’s been in Fort Smith, she enjoys swimming and playing volleyball with her family.

Natalia and her husband were brave to leave their home and country to start a new life in the United States.  With the love and support of their family, however, they are facing their new challenges with grace and determination. 

We wish Natalia continued success in learning English.  

Congratulations, Natalia!  You are doing great!
