ELKINS—The Kump Education Center will host an international lecture on Saudi Arabia Tuesday, July 25, at 7 p.m. at the Kump House in Elkins. The presentation titled “Saudi Arabia, Not Just a Desert Country” will be offered by Nasra Adan, a visiting lecturer from Prince Sultan University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Adan has traveled extensively worldwide, having lived in her home country of Canada, China, India, Korea, Japan, Kenya, and currently, Saudi Arabia. She can speak seven languages besides her native English: Chinese, Korean, Somali, Arabic, French, Swahili, and Spanish. Her language arts specialization has resulted in a career of teaching essay writing at the college level, and she has taught reading, listening, and speaking as a second language.
Adan’s lecture will feature a power-point presentation and Saudi treats and coffee afterward. She is married to Jacob Zuboy, formerly of Elkins.
The Kump Education Center is located at 401 Randolph Ave., Elkins (across from Kroger). Parking is available behind the Kump House with easy access on Seneca Road. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit kumpeducationcenter.com or the Kump Education Center Facebook page.
