Businessman wants to bring Chinese students to Struthers

Posted: Updated:

STRUTHERS, Ohio - A Chinese businessman is bringing foreign students to this area to be educated in local schools.

A building on Fifth Street in Struthers would need to be re-zoned to house upper class Chinese students who want to move to America for a year and be integrated into local school systems. The Honor House project has a similar operation in Greenville and could be a $6 million investment.

"They are aiming for the top Ivy league schools in this country. We would add a lot of value to the local schools because 20 years from now, these students are going to be movers and shakers in their home country," said American Scholar Group CEO David Ho.

A decision on the Struthers building could be made Wednesday and students would begin using it in August.
