Gan — Kozak

Andrew Kozak, of Marshalltown, and Yuri Gan were engaged on Aug. 28 in China. They met in her hometown in Guangdong Province in Southern China where they both work as English teachers.

The groom-to-be is a 2008 graduate of East Marshall and the son of Rex and Bonnie Kozak, of Marshalltown. He received a BA in Chinese from the University of Iowa in 2014 and moved to China shortly after graduation. The bride-to-be was an English major at Jilin University in the coastal city of Zhuhai, China.

The couple does not have a date set, but plans on tying the knot in 2018. Translators (the couple) will be on-hand for the ceremony.
