Spotlight on Turkey

This summer, the Council sent four Montana teachers to Turkey through a grant from the World Affairs Council of America and the Turkish Cultural Foundation. Now that the teachers have returned, they have organized community events to

help educate Montanans about the rich culture of Turkey. The teachers that went to Turkey this summer are Susan Seilstad from Lockwood Middle School (Billings), Nia Vestal from Troy High School, Sandy Armstad from Fergus High School (Lewistown), and Carol Gnauck from Chief Joseph Middle School (Bozeman).
