Special Emphasis Brings Refugee Issue into Focus

By Paul Dwight Feb 11, 2015

Special Emphasis Week highlighted global responsibility regarding the plight of refugees around the world. Students were introduced to ways in which they can help with this important issue through several local organizations.

Friday's final session capped the week with four North Korean refugees personally sharing their stories of escape and making the difficult journey to eventually reach South Korea. We were excited for this opportunity for our students learn first hand.
