MLWGS Families Strengthen Russian Connections

From Mar. 26-28, seven Russian high school students visited Maggie L. Walker and experienced wonderful Dragon hospitality as they prepared for the Bardathon. The Bardathon is produced by Richmond Shakespeare and Henley Street Theatre. It is an an international Shakespeare scene festival in which high school classes convene to collectively perform a Shakespeare play. 

Steven Pressendo, Addie Brower, Piper Shifflett, Abbey Ramsbottom, Emma Bilski, Allison Fegler and Dana Slayton acted as hosts and host families, and Mike White coordinated this exceptional opportunity.

On behalf of the group, sponsor Tatyana A. Bogdanova shares, “I view this visit as one of the most successful ones, with all events going smoothly, with wonderful care the school treated us with, with thoughtful, enthusiastic and generous hosts, with no confusion of any kind. We are now even more interested in establishing friendly links with your excellent school, and will be ready to receive a group whenever is convenient."
