Korean students recognized for assistance


The Saipan Mayor’s Office presented several Korean exchange students with certificates of appreciation after the group did a beach cleanup on Saipan.

The group of 51 exchange students from South Korea visited the Saipan Mayor’s Office yesterday and were presented with the appreciation certifications.

Saipan Mayor David M. Apatang said it is always appreciated when students from different countries come to the island and contribute to its beautification efforts.

He encouraged the students to come back again with their loved ones the next time so they too can experience the island’s beauty.

The students did their beach cleanups at the PauPau beach and at Sugar Dock.

The group of students was brought to the island by the Sasamo USA Corp. and was led by Grace Suhyunj Jo of the Sasamo USA Corp.

According to Jo, the students arrived on Saipan during the first week of January and will be leaving at the end of the month.

The students were able to visit the William S. Reyes Elementary School, Hopwood Middle School, and a number of other schools on the island. (Kimberly A. Bautista)
