GRAVETTE -- Zita Brans, Abbas Ariff and Zane Ariff, from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, spent the week of July 4 visiting in Gravette with Karen Kerr and Darla Tomasko.
Zita was an exchange student who lived with the Kerrs 37 years ago and attended high school at Gravette. Zane has been an exchange student who lived in Michigan for the school year and, before returning home, the family came to visit Zita's exchange family.
Zita and Abbas met at the University of Arkansas and were very surprised at the growth of this area since they were in school here and how much things had changed at the U of A.
While here, they were able to not only explore Gravette but to visit the U of A, Walmart at Bentonville and Crystal Bridges Museum. They also rode some of the bike trails in the area.Community on 07/10/2019
