A Franklin College student thought she had her future all figured out with plans to work at the Statehouse and attend law school.

Instead, she’s headed for Japan to help students learn English for two years.

Shanice Myers will spend the next two years in Kuji, Japan, helping students there learn English and assisting the city’s mayor. Her trip is part of the college’s partnership with Kuji, a sister city of Franklin. But before packing her bags in July, Myers will receive her political science degree from Franklin College on May 24.
