Welcome to CCID Scholars

This evening we had a chance to meet the new CCID Scholars.

It was an evening of food, singing, and getting to know each other.

IMG_8980When the CCID Scholars arrived, they were greeted by a whole house full of families, friends, and their mentors.  Our new students are from a range of countries and cultures.  The countries represented include  South African, Pakistan,  Egypt, and India.

As always we had some special food for everyone.  Thanks to the team who managed the grilling.  They did an awesome job. 

After dinner we had a fun time with the “getting-to-know-you” activities:  What were you doing in 1991?  In 2010 we “liked” playing that game.

IMG_8978_edited-1All that fun got us ready for a small break to enjoy home made deserts.  And that was enough to get everyone singing songs from the homeland.  We have some fantastic singers in our midst.

As the night drew to a close, we headed out, but not before giving each of our new IMG_9052_edited-1friends a bag of treats to welcome them to Houston, Texas.
