The journey of Rowan Jones is not unlike a lot of young Americans with an eye to the future. He had big plans for college at the beginning of 2020: the Virginia native was on his way to achieving some of his dreams of attending school in Shanghai. And then, the pandemic hit.

But that’s where his journey is unlike anyone else’s. Our Morning Edition host George Prentice spoke with Rowan Jones to hear more about the young man’s new, and unexpected, connection to Idaho and a particular hotel in Sun Valley.
