Saipan Mayor David M. Apatang presented certificates of appreciation yesterday to 38 students from South Korea, who did a beach cleanup last Saturday. The group visited Apatang’s office yesterday.
The students performed separate beach cleanups at the Paupau Beach and the Sugar Dock Beach.
The students, who arrived on Saipan last July 3 and will be here until Sunday, are currently participating in the 2019 Summer MBC Global Camp.
According to one of the groups’ chaperones, the group is composed of students from grades 2 to 7 and have been with the Northern Marianas International School at the Marianas Business Plaza for the entire month. This program is intended to help the students expand their grasp of the English language.
In their brief meeting with Apatang, the students asked him a couple of questions about the islands and his job as mayor.
Apatang said he hopes that the students learn a lot and bring their families the next time they come to Saipan.
The group is currently led by the SASAMO USA language school.
