French and Spanish alum finds career in the Navy
Anthony Pyanoe, M.A. ’14, graduated from Illinois State with a master’s in French and Spanish.
“During my deployment, I was, on several occasions, employed as a foreign liaison officer. I translated/interpreted, conducted tours, corresponded, etc., with foreign navies as we encountered them. The interactions were as simple as organizing events with a French frigate with whom we met in Barbados, to giving tours to admirals from the Dominican, Spanish, and French navies during various diplomatic missions my ship conducted.”
