This years Chinese New Year Celebration is a non-profit fundraising event that was conceived to help Chinese Language Club students take advantage of a program began by Catherine Channell, a Chinese language teacher for Douglas County Middle and High Schools. Catherine was instrumental in creating the opportunity for high school students to travel to Sichuan, China as part of a sister school exchange program. The goal of the program is to open students to a multicultural world to develop mutual respect and understanding of the Chinese culture. “Over one hundred high school students have taken advantage of the sister school exchange program since its inception,” stated Catherine.
