Letter to the Editor:Exchange students need host families in Rangely area

Dear Editor:
International high school exchange students are coming to study in the Rangely area during the 2011-12 school year. These students will integrate themselves into a local family with the goal of experiencing American culture as an American high school student does. In turn they will provide insight into their own culture.STS Foundation, a non-profit student exchange organization, is proud to help facilitate these relationships. They have been doing so for the past 20 years and look forward to finding new host families in Rangely and connecting them with exchange students. Two of the students looking for host families in the area for this year are Lilian and Janne. Lilian is a 16-year-old girl from a small town in Switzerland who loves sports. She has done athletics for seven years and has recently starting rowing. She has been a girl scout for seven years and has been a leader for younger girls. Shealso enjoys cooking, skiing and listening to music. Janne is a 17-year-old boy from Finland who considers himself  athletic and friendly. He loves playing soccer and has played it for nine years. He is also a very good guitar player and enjoys swimming, bowling and playing billiard. They are both excellent students and will have their own spending money and health insurance.The host family provides a separate bed, family meals and a loving and safe environment. If your family is interested in being a host family please call Lillian Clemente toll free at (800)522-4678 or send an email to lillian@stsfoundation.org.
