What does it take to enroll at LWC? Besides all the "known" factors, in the case of these lovely four young ladies, it also took a lot of endurance, as their trip to reach Columbia, KY, lasted anywhere between 15 and 20 hours. Their home countries are as far away as South Korea on one side of the globe and Serbia and Bosnia & Herzegovina on the other. The students arrived over the weekend and had their orientation session on Monday, January 16, 2017.
HyeonJi Choi and Hye-Jeong Lee, students from Kyonggi, South Korea, who are here as part of our cultural exchange program - both will stay for two semesters.
The students were able to meet their host parents on Sunday, January 15, 2017, as we welcomed three new families during our host parent orientation: Chris and Misty Konsavage, Brian and Cynda Moore, Renee Stinson & Damon Hicks. Julie Hatton, who has been with ISP for one year, joined us to share her experience as a host parent.
We know this program is as successful as it is because of our wonderful caring team of host parents! (See story posted on CM, September 2016, "International Student Programs - Ode to Host- parents" -story ID# 85686).
