Congratulations to Tara Menon Class of 2005 who has been nominated for membership in Phi Beta Kappa by Colorado College. Phi beta Kappa is the oldest and most distinguished honorary society in the United States and election to its membership is an acknowledgment of outstanding academic and intellectual achievement.

Tara has also received a full scholarship to pursue her postgraduate studies at Yale University.

Congratulations also to Maela Ohana Class of 2007 who has been selected to exhibit art work at the 53rd Biennale of Venice, a major contemporary art exhibition which takes place every 2 years and also includes the Film Festival and is recognized as one of the most prestigious cultural institutions in the world. The exhibition dates back to 1895 and this year's event will be organized by the Swedish curator Daniel Bimbaum.

The formal Biennale is based at the Giardini park that houses 30 permanent national pavilions. The Aperto began as a fringe event for younger artists and artists of a national origin not represented by the permanent national pavilions. This is usually staged in the Arsenale and has become part of the formal biennale program.
