Foreign students make big impact with summer employers

The J-1 student visa program is a huge success with local businesses and students from Door County's sister city of Jingdezhen, China.  Those involved have stepped up efforts to bring in more Jingdezhen students to fill summer jobs.  Grant Thomas, who's with the sister city program, says that's because the Chinese students have gone above and beyond to help businesses and visitors alike.


Thomas says the word is already getting out at colleges and universities around Jingdezhen that Door County wants them.  Many are already signing up for summer 2020.
