Testimonial 1: Faculty- Led Group Leader

The following excerpt is from a letter written by Dr. KC Morrison, formally of the University of Missouri (Columbia), to Dr. Michael Williams, Chairman of the Aya Centre.  It is in reference to a Winter Session the Aya Centre organized for a group of students from the University of Missouri that visited Ghana under Dr. Morrison’s direction.

Hi Michael,


What can I say? An immense thank you! You and your staff did a tour de force program and associated arrangements for us! I could not have been more pleased at the manner in which things had been organized, how the staff comported themselves, and with all of the housing and travel accommodations. It was splendid all around.


While I have not done a comprehensive survey of the students, from everything I have heard and seen they share my sentiments entirely. (I will be doing a broader evaluation later and will share the results with you.)


And as for our students, it gives me an immense amount of pleasure that we managed to hold together as a community while out there; that we had no major illnesses; and, that despite their being routine college students from the USA, their comportment held up and their interest and participation remained at the highest levels. Then everybody has gotten safely back home.


It was great to see you for this spell and to find Ghana in its normal fine and seductive shape. The International Center has scheduled me for a promotional session with students in two weeks. SO, I assume that means that we are planning for the next trip already. I hope so--this one certainly presented a fine demonstration of the workability of the concept.
