The Victoria County Czech Heritage Society and The Czech Ex-Students Association of Texas announced numerous options now available to learn the Czech language.

The Czech class (CZEC 1471), worth four credit hours, will be offered via synchronous online instruction from the Blinn College, Schulenburg Campus.

Students can participate in the class from anywhere and anytime as classes are recorded.

They will need a computer with high-speed internet connection and a headset.

High school students can study the Czech language for dual credit high school and college credit.

The class will meet online from 7:45 a.m. to 8:50 a.m. Monday through Thursday beginning Aug. 26 through Dec. 12 or attendees can participate in class on the Blinn College Schulenburg Campus, 100 Ranger Drive in Schulenburg.

High school students must work through their high school counselors as soon as possible (preferably before Aug. 23) but before the Czech classes start.

The counselor will contact Shannon Williford, Director of Dual Credit Program, at Blinn College to enroll students.

Anyone can register for the non-credit class and apply for a CESAT scholarship by contacting Loranine Orellana, Coordinator of Distance and Community Education at Blinn College Schulenburg Campus at 979-743-5237 or see

The last day to register and receive a limited number of Czech Ex-Students Association of Texas Scholarships is Aug. 26.

Additionally, the Victoria County Czech Heritage Society has a limited number of $100 — $125 scholarships available for members of VCCHS.
