Danish group honors native son now in Berea
Sune Frederiksen of Berea has been appointed a We Move the World Goodwill Ambassador by the National Danish Performance Team Committee in honor of the National Danish Performance Team's 20-year anniversary.
The Goodwill Ambassador title is awarded to individuals in recognition of their contributions to and involvement in:

■ Promoting the philosophy of "Sport for All — Sport for Life — Sport for Fun"
■ Strengthening the outreach and impact in societies locally and worldwide

Frederiksen came to Berea College from Denmark as a visiting instructor with a focus on physical education and dance, including general gymnastics, in 1995 via a connection with the Danish Gymnastics and Sports Association, the umbrella organization for the National Danish Performance Team. During his 10-month visit, he met his future wife, a local high school teacher, at a dance at the local folk center. The two married in 1997 and settled in Berea, where Frederiksen has worked as a restaurant and gallery owner and taught at EKU.
