Saudi Arabian internship program = cultural opportunities for Ada schools and its students

Robin VanBuskirk, Ada’s K-12 principal, describes the local school's partnership with ONU's Prison Management Certificate Program for men from Saudi Arabia.

How many children from Saudi Arabia attend the local school?
The program began in 2008 with 32 students. This year there were 18 students in the fall. Currently, there are only 7 enrolled because several of the wives went home with their children after the first semester. The fathers, who are in a two-year prison management program, spend the spring on internships at prisons throughout Ohio.

Saturday in the park - what a way to welcome spring to Ada

And they said it was going to rain.

Not a cloud in the sky and not one disappointed Ada youngster on Saturday. The Ada Area Chamber of Commerce with lots of volunteers hosted a great way to greet spring on Saturday.

The kid-oriented event had games, face painting, a kids' railroad, opportunity to make musical instruments, check in with Santa, plant a tree and take home a tree seeding.

There was lots, lot more.

Monty Siekerman provides Icon viewers with a photo scrapbook of the event. Open the attachment below for more photos.
