LCC President Dr. Marlene Wall participated in a reception at the US Ambassador’s home in Vilnius on Wednesday, September 11. The guest of honor was Governor Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania, who was hosted by Chargé d’Affaires a.i. Marcus Micheli of the JAV Ambasada Vilniuje / U.S. Embassy Vilnius, Lithuania. This is the Governor’s first visit to Lithuania, during which he is meeting with a number of government, business, and academic leaders in a spirit of cooperation and ongoing collaboration.
LCC International University has many long-term connections to the US State of Pennsylvania. LCC frequently welcomes Study Abroad students from our institutional partners in Pennsylvania (Messiah College, Geneva College, Waynesburg University, Eastern University). LCC has benefitted greatly from many professors and administrators who come from Pennsylvania. In addition, some of the Board of Directors at LCC are from Pennsylvania.
According to Dr. Wall, “This was a great opportunity to thank the Governor for the valuable connections between LCC and Pennsylvania, as well as to engage with other Lithuanian leaders who have or wish to have similar international connections.”
