December Student of the Month: Jordyn Williams
I visited Sirkka the same weekend that Truman had fall break. I had ever met her before. Sirkka used to live in Kirksville where she became friends with Dr. Mark Appold. When Dr. Appold heard that I was going to be studying in Estonia, he put me in contact with Sirkka. Little did I know that the smiling lady holding a piece of paper with my name on it at the Helsinki port would take me in as a part of her family. Sirkka took this picture of me in her home eating karjalanpiirakka and egg butter, wearing a necklace that her friend made for me. Even though Lahti, Finland is a long way from Ft. Smith, AR, I felt like I had gone home for fall break.
