Ashley Boyd, a teacher at Americana, had a wedding celebration here at Americana and we wanted to share the day with you! Her story about the day will leave you smiling: -What do you do at Americana? I am a full-time ESL instructor with JCPS Adult Education. My class is the literacy level, so most of my students have little to no formal education and are not literate in their first language. -Why did you decide to have a wedding celebration at Americana? I have taught various classes with JCPS specifically at Americana for about 4 years. I've been blessed to have great relationships with my students who have always been very caring and interested in my life. For as long as I can remember, multiple students have asked me when I"m getting married and if they can come. Some even gave me deadlines to find a husband. So when Seth and I quickly and secretly got married, I knew I wanted to have some form of a reception with my students. Many of them don't have transportation, so Americana would be an easy, familiar location for them. As I started planning, I realized that I could also use this opportunity for teaching. We had a mock wedding to resemble a typical American ceremony since most of my students will never be invited to an American wedding. The excitement of the day and the number of people didn't allow me to do all of the "lessons" I had hoped, but it was a wonderful afternoon. -Where did you and your husband meet? Seth and I met 6 years ago on a mission trip to Dearborn, Michigan through Campbellsville University. It was actually more of a cultural exposure trip to become more familiar with Arab culture and lifestyle. We've been friends for years and finally realized we both wanted to spend our lives together. -What was a sweet moment of the day? My favorite moment of the day was when we cut the cake. Everyone gathered around to take pictures and video. There were various sounds of excitement and cheering. Then right before we fed each other cake, an older gentleman from DRC interrupted us to give me a bag of soda. Then he pointed at Seth as if to say, "This is your husband!,"gave me a thumbs up, and then turned around and left. All of this happened while I had cake in hand. It was the perfect moment that represents my every day life in teaching here-- the sounds, the excitement, and the random interruptions.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered at Americana last week! A special thank you to the Starbucks partners who came to spruce Americana up on Thursday. 36 Starbucks District Managers, Store Managers, and Baristas came on their day off to help us tidy up, organize, and clean house at Americana. They spent 2 hours in 8 different stations in and around the center, giving us the spring cleaning we always need help with.
