THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Two of Thomas University's top role models in relations between the US and China were honored on Friday.

Recent graduate students Winnie Zhang And Tim Tian are the first recipients of the award.

It's presented to students who make the greatest contribution to the community during their time in Thomasville by serving as outstanding ambassadors for China.

"We never imagined that we could do something in the US before we came here, we started at Thomas University and TU gave us lots of chances, to take part in the community activities," said Winnie Zhang.

The couple volunteered with Hands on Thomas County. Winnie taught Mandarin and taught people how to cook food native to her country. The students were presented with a brick that will be placed in the newly established Peacemakers Circle on the campus.
