Chinese scholars and MTSU guests will visit Lynchburg, Tenn., tomorrow, June 25.
The attached news release provides background on this week’s U.S.-Sino Workshop on Mathematics and Science Education at Middle Tennessee State University. The week’s activities involve the exchange of innovative ideas and experiences to move math and science education to greater heights in both the U.S. and the People’s Republic of China.
With all that hard work, our guests also will be taking a break tomorrow for some informal tours and dining in middle Tennessee.
At 11 a.m., one group will visit Jack Daniels Distillery and the town of Lynchburg. At the same time, another group will be dining at Miss Mary BoBo’s.
At 1 p.m., the groups will exchange locations so that one will tour the distillery and the other will be at Miss Mary BoBo’s.
They will leave Lynchburg at 3 p.m.
We wanted to alert the local media about their special visit to middle Tennessee and to the Lynchburg area—in the event that your newspaper would like to cover it.
Please ask for MTSU’s Dr. Diane Miller in the group, who is taking the lead on this eventful week. Two MTSU students will be accompanying the group and serving as translators: They are Rong Wang (Joanne) and Jia Xiaohua (Grace).
If you need additional information, please call MTSU News and Public Affairs at 615-898-2919. If you do a story on their visit, we would appreciate receiving a copy for our files. Many thanks for your interest.
