Twenty-two students from Goseong, South Korea, visited Glendale and La Crescenta this week.

The students stayed with local families, attending Toll, Roosevelt and Rosemont middle schools.

On Friday, the three middle schools held assemblies for the visiting students to showcase their dance and martial arts skills.

Alex Woo of the Crescenta Valley Drug and Alcohol Prevention Coalition helped organize the weeklong stay. He was inspired by the five Rosemont students and five Wilson students who went to Goseong, South Korea, last April and stayed with local families there.
