WEST SPRINGFIELD - Sabina Mamedova came to the United States just a couple of months ago from the Krasnodar region of Russia. A 10-year-old fourth-grader at Coburn Elementary School said that she likes the change and that studying is so far easier in America than in her home country.
Mamedova is one of more that 60 Meskhetian Turks refugee students who have enrolled in the district schools since the beginning of the school year, and dozens more could still arrive in the coming months, according to the officials."
