2015 Student Luncheon in Rockland
High school and college students enjoyed the opportunity to attend a gathering at 3 Crow Restaurant in Rockland, where they met conference participants from other schools and had the opportunity to hear a speaker with personal experience in Russia. Courtnay Perevalova told students about the college experiences that motivated her to travel to and eventually move to Russia. She then discussed meeting the Russian who became her husband, their lives and their three Russian-American children. Questions raised by students focused on her life in Russia, as well as the political dynamics of Russia on the global stage. Her message was important to students: travel to other countries and let the experiences change your life. Click here to read Courtnay’s remarks.
