GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- Some local kids got the chance Thursday to learn about other countries without ever leaving home. International students at Grayson County College put on an international festival of cultures including a performance by several students, showcasing talents from their native cultures.
School kids from all over the county came out to watch.
Kathy Pearce of Grayson County College says it was a great way for her students to celebrate and learn about different cultures.
"Oh I think it’s hugely important....the outside world to them," says Pearce.
