International and Exchange students receive a warm welcome to Jackson
JACKSON, Tenn.– International and exchange students received a warm welcome to the city of Jackson Thursday.
Students from Mexico, Brazil, Spain, and Japan are a few of the many regions the students are from.
Some students are in West Tennessee for a one year exchange program, and some are here up to four years.
The event was held to help connect students.
“Hopefully they’ll make connections. So, for example, if there’s a student from Haiti maybe at another college here in town, they didn’t know their was another student, and they’ll make that connection,” said Jean Marie Walls, co-chair of the event.
This is the fourth year the city of Jackson has welcomed exchange students to West Tennessee.
