Yet another African link to UIS

A story in the Springfield paper on Friday described the "Lost Boys" of Sudan, and how a few of them arrived at UIS. I had no idea. It's a chilling tale. Also very inspirational. These young men, who don't even know how old they are, want to help their brothers and sisters back in Sudan, and they want people to know their story. I feel compelled to find out more about this.

It made me really proud to be part of UIS -- learning that we have a role in contributing to their education and that we are helping students in need to find their way here.
