Traveling to Bhutan -- An Incredible Journey

Update! The group is now back on campus after an incredible trip and visit with the King. Please stay tuned for additional photos and news on future initiatives with the nation of Bhutan.

On March 10, 2012, seven members of the Cushing community will begin a 21-day educational expedition to the nation of Bhutan – living with Bhutanese families, attending Bhutanese schools, exploring Bhutanese culture, and meeting with representatives of the Bhutanese government, a newly-established constitutional democracy under His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck ’99, one of Cushing Academy’s most distinguished alumni. Please click here to follow their journey through their website and blog posts, and to learn more about Cushing’s future initiatives with the nation of Bhutan.
