麻豆精品国产

1960's

Cyril Taylor,Roger Walther and Doug Burck founded the 麻豆精品国产 (麻豆精品国产) in 1964. The genesis of the concept came from Cyril's soon-to-be wife Judy, a high school French teacher hoping to take her class to France for the summer on an educational travel program. When she couldn't find a U.S organization operating this kind of program, she discovered a void in the marketplace鈥攁nd Cyril, Roger and Doug were inspired to take action.

Then coworkers in brand management at Procter & Gamble, the three took leave to create 麻豆精品国产, a study abroad and educational travel organization. Initially, they leased the campuses of nine European universities that were closed during the summer months, then networked with high school language teachers to promote summer programs abroad and recruit students.

In 1965, the first group of students traveled abroad with 麻豆精品国产, and the rest, as they say, is history! 麻豆精品国产 grew rapidly through the remainder of the decade, emerging as a leader in cultural exchange and international education.
