LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A group of Nicaraguan students is in the hub city learning parts of our culture. Texas A&M AgriLife Extension is teaching the students things like archery, sewing, cooking, and showing them some farming equipment.

"We are partnering with Texas Tech University and their agricultural education department. There is a group of Nicaragua students, 4-S kids, which is their 4-H program in Nicaragua, as well as some of their Ag teachers that are visiting Lubbock. They're spending time with Texas Tech for the next three days. But with that, we get to spend one day with them where we teach them some of the 4-H projects we do in Texas, and particularly here in District 2," said Program director and developmental director Andy Hart.

"I have never helped with something like this, a group like this, and knowing that 4-H is international and not just in the United States is an amazing opportunity and I've learned just as much from them as they have from me. it's been a great opportunity ," said Cottie Wright, President of Dist. 2.

This is the second year the students have visited Lubbock.
