Yingxue Liu spent several years in State College while her husband got his PhD at Penn State. A trained English teacher, Yingxue volunteered her services at the Mid-State Literacy Council. She was also a long-time member of GC’s English class. Now she is back in China, where she has been hired by Dalian University to teach academic writing.

GC President Bob Persiko and resident English instructor is advising her as she develops her course curriculum and materials. Thanks to Zoom, other alumnae of GC’s English program who have moved back to their home countries have been able to stay connected to the weekly classes. These highlight how our organization’s outreach extends beyond central Pennsylvania.
