A group of students from Russia are visiting Marion as part of their Sister City program. Six students from Vladimir, Russia arrived in Marion this week and are sightseeing in Marion and Indianapolis to learn American culture and develop relationships.
The Russian Sister City Program was first initiated through the Marion Police Department and has since grown into a business exchange and most recently a student exchange program.
Marion students have not yet been hosted by the Russian Sister City but Marion Mayor Wayne Seybold says they’re developing plans to do so in the future.
