Seisho High and SCHS have had a sister schools relationship since 1991, said Kelly B. McEuen
, international programs coordinator for the Scott Education Foundation.And while SCHS trips to Japan have been an on-again, off-again proposition, Seisho students have annually visited Georgetown, he
The Japanese, and especially those from Tahara, take the sister city/sister school relationship very seriously, McEuen said.With the excitement about our 10th year as sister cities, a great deal of that will be involving our mutual interest in education.
But Seisho students are well-known at Scott County High, and the school is commonly known as a familiar place in Tahara, they have visited here so many times..
Currently in Georgetown are Seisho principal Tadashi Kawaguchi, English teacher Masaru Yamamoto, PTA chairman Yoshiyuki Omuru and chaperone Takaya Natsume.
We could not do without our host families, said McEuen
, a 1993 graduate of Georgetown College.One of our worries is that they are the same host families.We would love to get other people involved as well, and especially with our 10th anniversary of being sister cities with Tahara approaching..
