NYSAFLT is pleased to announce that we will honor John Carlino and his advocacy efforts with the NYSAFLT 100K for 100 Years John D. Carlino Legacy Fund, a fund which was established in 2017 under his guidance and support. By renaming this fund, NYSAFLT will remember John and his vision to financially support projects and help solve problems that language teachers and leaders face. Before his passing, we were able to share with him our wish to rename the fund, and John was humbled but enthusiastic about the idea; his family has expressed their approval of the name as well.
In NYSAFLT’s letter to its members when the campaign was first launched, John wrote, “NYSAFLT has played an integral role in our personal and professional experiences as teachers and leaders in the world language profession. Through NYSAFLT, we have forged life-long friendships with colleagues across the state, nation, and even the world. Through this powerful network, we have become critical players in the decisions that affect the direction of world language education.”
When you donate to this fund, we hope you will remember the strong advocate, mentor, and friend John was to language teachers not only in New York but across the nation and beyond. We hope to continue to sustain NYSAFLT’s goals and activities to support language teachers and rise to their needs.
