INTO Marshall representatives in Thailand showed the “We Are Marshall” movie to educational counselors last month.
Participants were were ferried to the event on a tuk-tuk adorned with Marshall pennants and flags, said Tom Keenan, INTO’s recruitment director for east Asia.
“We ran a short presentation, put on a light dinner and then got down to the business of watching the movie,” Keenan reported. “They loved the movie and maybe even a few of them cried.”
He added that after the movie, they gave a quiz on the movie and Marshall. The following day, participants received a thank you by e-mail with a short PowerPoint presentation attached.
“Hopefully, we have created a great impression regarding Marshall and INTO that will translate into students,” Keenan concluded.
