CDTs Nicholas Tavassoli, Steve Berrios, and Emma San Martin all competed in the annual Spoken Russian Olympiada, hosted this year at SUNY-Binghamton. The cadets were prepared for the competition by Dr. Olga Dobrunoff. Dr. John Pendergast coordinated the cadets' participation. CDT Tavassoli distinguished himself by placing 3rd place overall among all the students competing from five different colleges. After the competition, all participants enjoyed a meal of Slavic dishes: borscht, pierogis (stuffed dumplings), goluptsy (stuffed cabbage) and sausage with sauerkraut.
