College student learns, teaches in South Africa

Rochester native Tim Hendrickson, a student at Saint John's University in Collegeville, is in South Africa for a semester-long study abroad program.

Hendrickson recently worked with adjunct professor Gretchen Starks-Martin of the College of St. Benedict and Saint John's University to present a workshop to students at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth on how to read and learn from textbooks.

Hendrickson is a junior psychology major, expected to graduate in 2012.

During his semester in Port Elizabeth, he is taking classes in South African literature, music, politics and history while participating in a service learning project. He also will mentor NMMU students.
