To the Editor:
A wonderful opportunity for international friendship is available for families in the Champlain Valley Union School District. Tobias, a 15-year-old German student, has his heart set on studying this next year at CVU and CVU has a place ready for him. But he needs a host family.
Tobias’s visit is being coordinated by an exchange organization. Several families in other districts have offered to host Tobias, but the schools in those districts did not have a place for him.
As a friend of the family, I was asked to help locate a school and a host family. Thirty-eight years ago, my family hosted a Swiss student. That opened the door to a lasting friendship and visits back and forth
through the years. It has been a wonderful experience and that’s why I was eager to help.
Anyone interested in learning more about this opportunity may email Linda Suiter at firstname.lastname@example.org, who is coordinating his visit.
Tobias is a skier, tennis and piano player and is interested in many subjects. He is so eager to hop on a plane and become part of our community.
