Korean students visit J.R. Tucker H.S.
Six Korean students from Yangju City, South Korea, attended J.R. Tucker High School for a week in January, staying with host families from the Center for World Languages Specialty Center at Tucker. The South Korean city is linked with Henrico County in a sister-city relationship and was visited by former Henrico County Public Schools Superintendent Fred Morton and School Board member Diana Winston in 2008.
