About UKCI collaboration with local organization:
“Many thanks to all of you for your contributions to the Living Arts and Science Center’s Family Fun Day! We truly appreciate the Confucius Institute taking part in this free event for families in the community. It is always hard to predict who our audience will be or how they will respond to new activities – I was pleased with how flexible you were in making your activities fun and educational for everyone involved. We had a great turn-out and you were a big hit!" said Sarah Campbell, Art Education Coordinator, Living Arts and Science Center.

About UKCI’s Spring Gala :
“The Gala last night was wonderful!  James, Rachel, and I loved the entire event.  The performers were outstanding!  It’s so nice what the CI is doing for Central Kentucky.  I’m sure only bigger things are on the horizon!” said Lisa S. Wilson, the Provost Budget Office at the University of Kentucky.

About UKCI's High School China Tour:
“I am honored to have been given the opportunity to travel internationally with you and the group of students to China.  It was a trip of a lifetime for me. Traveling for the first time internationally to China was exciting and rewarding. The people of China are a humble people, very gracious and healthy to say the least.  I have been asked many times by my coworkers “how was the trip?”, “what did you see?” etc.  I told them it was wonderful and yes I would go back again as long as I had an interpreter with me. Again, I want to thank you for giving me this opportunity for it will be a treasured one for life,” said parent Tracey McFarland
