South African Study Tour Visit

So, for the last week I have had the pleasure and privilege of hosting four incredible economic educators from South Africa. Karen, Seymour, Alex and Rudy traveled a LONG way to spend some time with us to see how we go about delivering economic education in Georgia. The trip , which was sponsored by the Council for Economic Education, started off with a two-day orientation in Washington, DC. While in DC we had a chance to spend a day on Capitol Hill, where we met with representatives of Congressman Westmoreland, Congressman Gingry, Congressman Lewis, Senator Isakson and Senator Chambliss. As you can see in the photo above, we even had the chance to meet with Senator Chambliss.

After a busy day on the hill advocating for the continued funding of international programs, we hopped on an Atlanta bound plane to start four days of action packed economics.
