Willmar Senior High to have teacher from China next school year


WILLMAR -- The Willmar School District Mandarin Chinese program will participate in two U.S. State Department programs in the coming year.

The district will host a teacher from China for the 2011-12 school year, and Chinese teacher Todd Lynum will participate in an intensive study program in China this summer.

It will be the second time in three years Willmar has been chosen to host a teacher through the State Department's Teachers of Critical Languages Program.
