Clarion Becomes a Sister City to Junik, Kosovo
A northwest Iowa town has established a sister-city relationship with a city that’s more than 5,200 miles away. Junik is in western Kosovo. Joe Nelson, the superintendent of the Clarion-Goldfield-Dows School District, was part of the delegation that visited Kosovo to sign the agreement.
Nelson says the exchanges will benefit schools, businesses, hospitals and all kinds of commerce in both cities.
Nelson says he’s hesitant to send Clarion students to Kosovo at this time.
Clarion has about 2,700 residents, while Junik, Kosovo has a population of about 6,000. Iowa and Kosovo have had a sister state relationship since 2013.
