Olivia Forrest of Calhoun completed the Summer Language Institute at the University of North Georgia.

Students in the Summer Language Institute gained experience far beyond the classroom this summer. As part of the intensive six-week course from June 15-July 31 that earned them eight credit hours in Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean or Russian, students took field trips to put their language skills into practice.

Forrest studied Chinese.

Snow attends Gordon Central High School.
