I would like to personally thank Michael Buskirk/Daria Mason and family. Joe and Diane Scott, Dr. Luis, Ramona and Catalina Coppelli, Bill and Elise Pitterle and Ray, Lorraine and Chelsea York who have hosted exchange students this year through EF a Foundation for Foreign Study. Our students have returned to their home countries and will never forget their new families and friends who have had an unforgettable year in our community as they were given the opportunity to explore the world and immerse themselves in a new culture.
I would also like to thank the teachers and staff of Payson High School and the Center for Success for welcoming them into the schools and helping them to improve their English skills as well as being able to excel in so many other aspects of the educational system, music, sports and other activities.
I also wish to thank Ms. Michael and Mmrs. Ketchem for allowing me the opportunity to place these students, from our program and I look forward to the coming school year as EF will again be placing three students within our midst.
