Ambassador King Visits Zatec

Ambassador King visited the hops capital of the Czech Republic – Zatec – where he spoke to 300 students from the local gymnazium and obchodni akademie in honor of International Education Week.  While there he met with Mayor Hamousova, school directors and teachers and our American Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Zatec, Alden Mohacs.

The Ambassador told the students to continue working hard in school, because a thriving democracy requires an educated populace, and he encouraged them to apply for U.S. government academic exchange programs like FLEX and Fulbright, or to work with our EducationUSA advisers to learn more about studying in the United States.  Later, he toured the town square and the beautiful hops museum.
