Brian Hu could feel like a fish out of water. He is 7,500 miles from his island home of Taiwan.

Hu, 19, is a Rotary exchange student in Iola since September. He was to have spent his exchange year in Moore, Okla., but the tornado that ravaged the town in May changed his plans mid-stream.

For several months Hu has been a guest in the home of Fred and Judy Works. The opportunity works both ways, Judy Works said, giving their son, Colby, a chance to have a brother again. Their older son, Dylan, is spending a year studying in New Zealand.
