Wally Is That You?
Good morning Cowboys,
Have you seen the ways the tree have been looking lately? They are so vivid. Wally couldn’t help himself from adventuring over and seeing them up close. This actually sparked his interest to see who on campus could tell him more.
And, boy, did he find someone to talk to…and talk to…and talk to.
Actually, he’s still talking to them right now. But don’t you worry unscramblers, I’m sure he’ll come down from cloud nine and leave his letters for you to unscramble…just whenever he gets done talking.
As always, good luck to you all.
Congratulation to last week’s winner, Sri Lakshmi Gurram, who correctly unscrambled “Global Studies.” To read more about the Global Studies program, click here
