FLS International to Sponsor Citrus College Foundation Talent Show
By Rachel White

Foreign Language Services (FLS) International has signed on as a platinum sponsor of the Citrus College Foundation’s upcoming fundraiser and talent competition, Valley’s Got Talent.

The Pasadena-based organization has donated $7,500 to support the event, which will benefit Citrus College students and programs.  FLS provides English as a Second Language programs to international students studying in the United States and around the world.  They offer their students nine levels of English language courses that encompass speaking, listening, writing, and reading.  All courses are taught in a supportive learning environment to quickly improve English skills. 

Although the corporate office of FLS International is located in Pasadena, they provide their services on numerous college campuses, including Citrus College.

“We believe in the mission of Citrus College and are impressed with its campus, programs, and dedicated instructors,” said Dal Swain, the chief executive officer of FLS.  “For nearly 20 years, our organization has been affiliated with Citrus College and we are thrilled to support the college, its students, and the community by sponsoring Valley’s Got Talent.”

Swain said that hosting a talent competition is a perfect choice for Citrus.

“Citrus College is known locally and internationally for its incredible performing arts program,” Swain said.  “Now with Valley’s Got Talent, Citrus is providing area entertainers with an opportunity to be recognized and mentored.”

This unique talent show will be held in the Haugh Performing Arts Center on Sunday, January 30 at 2 p.m. 

Modeled after some of today’s most popular music programs, Valley’s Got Talent is designed to highlight the best amateur singers, dancers, musicians, and performers in the area.  Over 20 acts will perform and compete before an expected audience of 1,400 for a grand prize of $1,000.  The first runner-up will receive $500 in cash. 

Ticket prices for Valley’s Got Talent were recently reduced from $20 apiece to $10 apiece.  At the same time, there will be an opportunity drawing for a chance to win a 7-night stay at any Trading Places resort.  Opportunity drawing tickets are $20 apiece or 10 tickets for $100.
