A few weeks after the singing, President Jackson and other BHSU representatives attended the Botswana Tertiary Education Fair and Conference in Gaborne, Botswana. They talked with over 3,000 students and brought home 500 completed contact cards from those wanting more information. BHSU has already received 10 completed admission applications from Botswana.
