Young, bright and adventurous, two Natchez natives are making similar journeys in the Far East this school year &8212; one teaching English in Korea, the other, in China.

Jennifer Paradise, daughter of Robert and Ann Paradise of Natchez, a 2001 graduate of Trinity Day School, and a recent graduate of Millsaps College, is in Wuhan, China, a city of 7.3 million, teaching college freshmen and sophomores at a university.

Bazile R. &8220;Buddy&8221; Lanneau III, who attended Trinity through grade 10 and then completed high school at Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science in Columbus, is a recent graduate of Rhodes College in Memphis, Tenn. The son of Bazile and Jeanie Lanneau of Natchez, he is in Seoul, Korea, where he teaches English to children ages 7 to 13 and also serves as &8220;sort of a P.E. instructor,&8221; including teaching preschool gym class a few days a week.
