We have a couple of photos of our team from the Springfield Renaissance High School who represented the Council and the region at The World Affairs Councils of America’s 10th Annual Academic WorldQuest competition in April.

In addition to the competition with teams from all over the country, the students attended a reception at the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China where Ambassador Zhang Yesui gave his observations on the US-China relationship and a reception at the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia.
