Nippertown drummer about town Jim Ketterer is pulling up stakes and heading to Cairo.
That’s right… Egypt.
“I am leaving Albany and taking a job as Country Director in Egypt for an organization called Amideast that does educational and cultural exchanges, mostly with U.S. Government support,” Ketterer explains. “They run things like Fulbright fellowships, educational testing for Egyptian students, study abroad programs, arts exchanges, etc.
“It pulls together my background in higher education, international development and the Middle East (where I used to live) – all at an important and interesting moment for the Arab world.”
