Students at Central School
were provided a wealth of information regarding different countries,
including food, art, photos, videos, instruments, games,
traditional attire, etc. The students came through in small groups,
spending about 10 minutes at each table. The students prepared
questions and presented their passports to be stamped by each
country representative. The student/presenter dialogue brought about
excellent discussions and developed an awareness of our
diverse world community.
The goal of this event was to provide diversity enrichment and a
global worldview. Representing the various countries were Sheema
Wahab, Pakistan; Shannon Maupin, Mexico; Ashlie Pitcock, Haiti; Angela
Rogers, Africa (Congo); Charis Gordon, Laos; and Kim Ayers, Japan.
Each individual is a Lincoln resident. Ashlie, Angela, Charis and
Kim are all students or graduates of Lincoln Christian University
or Seminary. Shannon and Sheema are active members of Lincoln
Christian Church. The flags were borrowed from Lincoln Christian
Church and the banners were borrowed from Lincoln Christian
Other sponsors were Kroger, Neal Tire, Owl's Roost, Lincoln IGA, Jimmy John's, Lincoln YMCA, 5th Street Food Mart, Lincoln Christian Church, Lincoln Christian
University and Adam Schmidt for Country Financial.
