Helping hand from Quzhou, China
Tao Peng of Minnesota State College Southeast shared information with Red Wing’s sister city in Quzhou, China. He said he received over 20 emails from China seeking more details. The voting information is being sent out to teacher groups and parents all over the province.
A call between Minnesota State College Southeast officials and a few of directors from the Quzhou government is scheduled to see how the sister city can help Red Wing get more votes.
