Former South Korean exchange student ‘at home’ with McKim Family in Lanesville PDF Print E-mail

    Jin-Hee Jung, an exchange student at Lanesville High School during the 2006-07 school year, has returned to the same community that welcomed her just two years ago, the community of Lanesville, in Franklin Township in Eastern Harrison County. This time around, she is studying full time at Indiana University Southeast in New Albany.
    She is also staying with a family she stayed with part of the year that year, the Denzil McKim Family.
    “Two years ago, I wanted to experience something new, so I joined the exchange student program in the USA,” said Jin-Hee. “I went to Lanesville High School as an exchange student for 06-07. It was successful, (and) I learned many other things about life other than study.”
    Jin-Hee has had positive feelings towards the United States, and for her it goes back to the Korean War. General Douglas MacArthur for a time led the American forces in the 1950-53 war, and to her, MacArthur is a hero of the Korean War.
    “I think the USA is a very good friend of my country, South Korea,” Jin-Hee said. “In history, Douglas MacArthur was the hero of the Korean War. Every South Korean knows that. Still today, (the) US Army helps to guard from North Korea. Also, my country and (the) USA are good economic partners. I feel good when I see my country’s products here (i.e. Samsung, Kia, and Hyundai).”
    She added, “Generally, I felt friendly about the USA even before I joined the exchange student program, because I’ve heard about the USA a lot. While I was growing up, I was curious about the country that tries to keep world peace, (and is) one of the strongest countries in the world.”
