Because of the large Korean automotive presence in Alabama and in nearby West Point, Georgia, AKEEP was established to provide a link between South Korea and the U.S. by allowing high school students from Alabama and Korea to visit the other’s county. Several counties, including Chambers, are participating in the program, which began with 20 Alabama high school students visiting South Korea last summer. Four students were from the Chambers County System, including LaFayette High’s Jalen Hambrick. The Korean students will be coming to Alabama in the first few weeks of February, and will be staying with their American host families here in Chambers County. Pictured at the donation ceremony, from left, are Dahee Jeong, Executive Assistant of AKEEP; Kelli Hodge, Chambers County Schools Superintendent; Meesoon Han, President of AKEEP, David Quinney, Alabama Power, Valerie Gray, Chambers County Development Authority Executive Director; and Kimberly Fuller, Chambers County Development Authority.
