Morrison High School students Emily Clark and Hannah Rillie are attending World Affairs Seminar, today through Friday at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wis.

Clark is a junior and Rillie is a senior.

The seminar is the vision of Rotarian Dr. Dale Brock. His idea was to bring about better understanding of world problems among a select group of young people from around the world. He built WAS to study current issues.

WAS provides opportunities for participants to discuss the issues with other young people from around the world.

Emphasis is on promoting better understanding of the causes of international conflict with the idea that if the causes are understood, problems are more likely to be solved peacefully.
