Logan, WV —- Students hailing from Cambodia, South Africa, Korea, and Namibia who are a part of a group from Sandy Spring, Maryland doing service work in Logan County this week will sit in on social studies and history classes at Logan High School on Thursday, March 21st. As part of the cultural exchange, the international students will talk about their culture and government, answer questions from Logan students, and also learn about life and culture in Logan.

Hosted by the American Friends Service Committee and BAPS Youth Leadership, the visiting students from Sandy Spring Friends School in Maryland are here all week on their spring break, helping at the community garden in Shamrock, working at PRIDE Head Start in Dehue, and learning about the BAPS youth’s efforts to end child poverty.

“It’s cool to hang out with kids from other parts of the country and the world,” BAPs member Storm Coleman says, “Doesn’t take long to realize that we’re not as different as you’d think.”
