Ensenada, BC, Mexico – June 23, 2007 - Champagne was flowing last week as the Baja California Language College celebrated its 10 year anniversary.
Founded by Duluth, MN native, Keith Rolle, and Ensenada local, Yolanda Camacho on June 13, 1997, the College has gained international renown for its highly effective Spanish immersion programs.
"I can't believe so much time has passed until I look at photos from 10 years ago," says Camacho. "We’ve made a lot of progress."
The school started with two instructors, Lupita Luna and Estela Lopez and Camacho as director. Rolle handled the marketing, communications and administration. It has since has grown to include up to 14 instructors during peak season. Students from all 50 US states, 5 Canadian provinces and 29 foreign countries have enrolled over the past 10 years.
"Back in ‘97 we started out with not much more than a dream and the willingness to work a lot of hours," Rolle explains. "I could not be more proud of my staff for their perseverance and professionalism. They’re the reason that we’re recognized as one of the top Spanish immersion institutions in Latin America today."
