On March 10, 2011, the UWest Chaplaincy Club, in partnership with the ESL Department, sponsored a Storyteller’s Hour.
UWest students, faculty, and staff came together to tell stories about ‘Tragedy and Triumph.’ The event was attended by around forty people and garnered ten storyteller participants. In addition, a three judge panel made up of Rev. Danny Fisher, Carmella Chaney, and Ven. Zhenguan, gave out prizes to the best ESL Storyteller (Halu), Most Humorous (Mike Wong), Most Touching (Monica Sanford and Jacob Lindsley tied), and a Staff Prize (Ven. Jue Ji).
Thank you to everyone who helped organize the event, the storytellers, the audience, and the judges.
