Derek Cash, a 2008 graduate of Chugiak High, is among 28 Linfield College (McMinnville, Ore.) students participating this spring in a Linfield study abroad program.
Cash, a senior majoring in anthropology and history, is studying at the Hong Kong Baptist University in Hong Kong, China, and living in student residence halls. In Hong Kong, students can take advantage of the international trading, powerful manufacturing bases and one of the world’s largest financial centers while learning about Hong Kong and the Chinese culture.
Cash is the son of Ves and Laura Cash of Chugiak.
The Linfield College study abroad programs are designed for students who have completed one or two years of study in the appropriate foreign language (Japanese, Spanish, French, Chinese or German) at Linfield and who will return to the college to share their international experiences with others in the campus community. Linfield also offers study abroad opportunities in locations where foreign language is not required, such as Hong Kong, Ireland, England, Korea and Norway, where students may choose courses taught in English.
