ETSU hosts summer school for migrant students

"East Tennessee State University is holding a summer program for migrant students to help them make the transition to local schools."

"Hillary Hester, the program coordinator, says the language barrier is the biggest problem. She expects about 80 to 100 students ranging in age from 3 to 21 to participate each week in the summer program, June 21-July 30."

"Eligible students have moved within the last three years with a parent, guardian or spouse seeking work as agricultural or fishery laborers."
