Globetrotting at a distance with Nona Shepherd
The world does not end at the county line. Led by Professor Nona Shepherd, International Education at Northeast State program strives to share the world’s cultures to students with past visits to Washington, D.C., and the United Kingsport; international speakers and events such as the very popular International Food Day.
Then, COVID came. Travel bans and social distance followed. But the desire to see and share experiences remains strong. While the moving events to the virtual world in 2020, Shepherd is looking ahead to a post-COVID world of international education. We welcome her to The Sound Bearier as we talk international education, literature, and Southern Appalachia.
