Gerry Krzic, director of the Ohio Program of Intensive English (OPIE), never imagined the impact his time living in Korea would make on the rest of his life, but nearly 40 years later he continues to visit the East Asian region and leads an organization that helps the American public better understand the development of modern-day Korea.

Krzic is the president of Friends of Korea, an organization established to foster connections between people in the U.S. and Korea, and between Korean-American communities stateside.

Recently, Krzic accepted the national Peace Corps Association’s Loret Miller Ruppe Award for Outstanding Community Service on behalf of the Friends of Korea for a project he worked on with other organization members creating a “Study Guide to Accompany The Korean Transformation.”
