NMSC 2019 (4/13/2019)

KSEA Texas Coastal Bend 에서 주최한 제2회 NMSC 경진대회가 성황리에 마무리 되었습니다. 총 8명의 학생들이 참여하였고 올해는 콜퍼스의 이병현(Winsor park, 5th grade) 학생이 영예의 1등을 차지했습니다. 내년에는 더욱 많은 학생들이 참여하는 남텍사스에서 자라나는 우리 2세들의 자랑스러운 대회로 자리메김할 것으로 확신합니다. 봉사자로 참여해주신 성창규, 김태식 교수님과 그 외 학생들 참여를 독려해 주신 이경은, 최윤수 교수님들께 감사드립니다. 내년에도 많은 성원 부탁드립니다.
