Forty five Malaysian students depart next week to spend a semester in high schools across the United States. They will experience student life, learn about American society, and of course make new friends. U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Officer Frank Whitaker hosted all 45 students at his home today for a barbeque lunch, and Deputy Chief of Mission Edgard Kagan wished them well on their new adventure.
