The Marshall Independent newspaper carries the fascinating story of Thuy Leach, who came to America from Vietnam in 2006, learned to speak English thanks to adult basic education in Marshall, and runs a business exporting popcorn that has grown 150%. She was a licensed teacher and nurse in Vietnam.
"I love Marshall. I'm totally in love with Marshall," Leach said. "I don't like Minneapolis, it's so crowded. So many traffic jams, so many cars, it's too busy for me. Marshall is quiet. The schools are great to my children..."
It's a good read.
