Donnie Clary, vice president for business and finance, asked for the kitchen footage which the students had taken. Lynch relates what was on the tape, “There was footage of a woman working with food, takes of her hat and sets it on a covered (with plastic wrap) tray of food.” ‘There was also an open waste container which had lemons, old eggs, etc. There were three people not wearing hats (visors or hair nets are required) or hair nets.” The students, after consulting with Ted Vaughan, the television class instructor, de cided not to use the footage in their final See Cafeteria page 4 Gardner-Webb hosts English school by Abdul Asghar The Pilot correspondent Gardner-Webb students have noticed the arrival of new international students, from Brazil, on campus. These students are part of Phil Young's English School. They have come directly from Brazil to go through an intensive English course that lasts three weeks. Currently, there are 72 students, ranging in age from 12 to 40. The Brazilians are here for three weeks at a time and on January 24, the second group arrived at Gardner-Webb. Phil Young's objective is to teach his students enough English so that they may be able to get a score of 550 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). TOEFL is a test most international stu dents take to test their proficiency in English. Most schools require TOEFL for admission form international students. Phil Young is an American who has lived in Brazil for several years and has started EngHsh language schools in Brazil. He came to Gardner-Webb from St. Andrews in the summer of 1993 and brought approximately 150 students with him from Brazil. The Phil Young English School is not affiliated with any GWU program however, the Brazilian students have the same basic privileges as G-W students though. The Brazilian students also have to fol low the regulations stated in the G-W Students Handbook. Abdul Asghar’s home nation is Pakistan, not Palestine as we incorrectly stated in our Christmas issue.
