WKCTC Students Share Cultural Differences

West Kentucky Community and Technical College students whose families are non-native to the United States will discuss their heritage and cultural expectations of America during a free presentation November 19.

In My Shoes: Im a College Student from Another Country, which is part of the WKCTC diversity and inclusion series, will be held November 19 from
11 a.m. 12:15 p.m. in the Anderson Technical Building Bistro.

The student panel will share their personal stories and the cultural differences that impact their daily lives at the college. WKCTCs Kim Russell, English program coordinator, will moderate the panel.

This event is a great way for our students who are from other countries to open the door of communication so they are able to help other students, faculty, staff and the community better understand their culture and heritage, said Gail Bachuss, diversity and inclusion series coordinator.

Participants can also sample refreshments from various international countries, sponsored by the colleges Multicultural Appreciation Club.
