Korea Team

Ambassador Mark Lippert visited the Kyungpook National University (South Korea) campus to discuss U.S.-Korea cooperation in higher education.  Two UNI students, Samuel Kapler and Nicole Hegewald are participating in a month-long special summer program at KNU; both are secondary education majors  in mathematics. Sam successfully competed for the opportunity to meet with the ambassador and impressed all.   Please note that UNI student Sam Kapler is in the middle row on the far right and Nicole Hegewald is the one standing next to Ambassador Lippert wearing the UNI T-shirt. We are extremely proud of Sam and Nicole.  This opportunity was big for them and we're glad UNI could play a small part. Sam and Nicole will return to Iowa in a few days time. We look forward to learning more about their stay.
