One of the joys of the 06 summer came with working with students from Farmington in a collaboration between Tunxis Community College and what we called The China Institute. John Timmons and I, along with Ren Tong, provided opportunities in digital storytelling and Mandarin Chinese study for the students, who generated wonderful work in video and other software.
These young men and women were charming, smart, conscientious, and tech savvy. One of the standouts was Alyssa Roy, whose gregariousness and work ethic made the digital storytelling sessions a pleasure, not just for the instructors but for her peers.
Alas, we must report losing her to an automobile accident.
This is very sad news.
