What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
s Student raised in two different countries by Marti Alltucker Staff Writer Imagine going to a high school in Singapore where 85 percent of the student body has to be American, because it is considered an American school. And this school is only 10 miles away from the Malaysian border, where ter rorism is minutes away. This was normal for Kelsey Samson, a junior nursing student here at Carroll College. Kelsey was born in Boise, Idaho on June 2, 1984 and in 1997 her family moved to Singapore because of her father’s job. Her father works for the U.S. Wheat Association where he markets wheat from Pakistan to the Philippines. Samson then moved back to the United States in 2002 for college and eventually found her way to Carroll College in the fall of 2004, to join the nursing program. In Singapore the school guards were not armed with pepper spray or flashlights, but with M-16 auto matic rifles and all unmarked cars had to be searched before entering the premises. She played soccer, touch rugby and studied the same classes we do, with an addition of Asian History. All of her teachers were from America but had been overseas for more than five years. On her free time she and her friends would go to Sentosa, an island a few miles from the city of Singapore, where they played beach volleyball. She also laid by her pool or went out to the local bars or clubs with her friends on the weekends. Samson has done quite a bit of moving back and forth from the United States and Asia and has come back with some unusual sto ries. Everyday from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. during November through February it would rain like clock work. “At school my shoes and the bottom of my pants would be soaked because our halls flooded whenever it would rain,” Kelsey said. “She adjusts very easily to her new situations,” said Arlene Mitchell, Kelsey’s grandma. “She seems to fit right in wherever she goes.” As spring break approaches Kelsey is planning her trip to go back home to Singapore to spend a week with her family. “It’s so fun to live in two differ ent countries because I get to experience so many things,” said Kelsey. Kelsey Samson was given the opportunity to grow up in two very different cultures.
