Greetings from brightest Africa

Lexington engineer works on agriculture in Rwanda

James Ellison sends you greetings from Rwanda.

He keeps in touch with news back home in the Lexington County Chronicle. 

James is the son of Bill and Lucia Ellison of Paul Davis Restoration in Lexington.

He graduated from Clemson in Biological Systems Engineering.

In Germany, he earned his masters degree in tropical agriculture at the University of Goettingen. 

He is conducting agricultural trials for a social enterprise in the Republic of Rwanda.

The landlocked country is in the Great Rift Valley, where the African Great Lakes and East Africa converge.

It is among the smallest countries on the African mainland, a few degrees south of the Equator, 

Rwanda is bordered by Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

This photo was taken at Lake Kivu in Rwanda. 

The Congo is barely visible behind him.

Please send photos of your children with the Chronicle in whatever exotic locations they may be.

Please email them to
