They will present a program at 3 p.m. Wednesday, March 24, in the Library Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. Topics will include South Korean culture, education, history and politics. After the program, they will tour the campus, visiting the equestrian facilities and the American Sign Language interpreting lab.


The group plans to visit Rotary clubs in Fulton, Fayette, Boonville and Centralia in a three-day period. The members range in age from 25 to 44. They have diverse background and life experiences, and are all interested in learning about different aspects of American business, culture and educational experiences.


Team leader Chan Yeol Choi is the CEO/owner of an English institute. Other team members are: Young Ju Park, a city official; Jung Ae Lee, a social worker at a child welfare agency; Eunhyong Shim, a researcher in geological resource surveys, and Seong Hwa Lee, an image consultant.


Each team member hopes to visit companies and businesses within their field of expertise to observe and learn practices they can bring back to South Korea.
