You may know Lydia Kilian. She's from South China and graduated from Erskine Academy (with my son, Matt James). She's also a popular blogger...and you can check her blog out by clicking here.

The following is an email I received from Jefferson native, Liz Jones, who is now in Panama:

Lydia Kilian, from South China, is in the peace corps in Thailand. She can speak fluent Thai and has worked very hard on her blog. So hard that she is a top 20 finalist in a contest within the peace corps for her blogging. The next step is to have people like her photo on the peace corps Facebook page. Her prize would be a trip to Washington D.C. to be a representative of the Peace Corps. She is participating in a Peace Corps volunteer position
