I would like to personally thank Michael Buskirk/Daria Mason and family, Laura, and Jason Hacker, the Scott Nossek family, Steve and Sherry Taylor, Kristi Kisler, Joe and Diane Scott, the Trevor Creighton family, Jonathan and Beverly Adams, the Tim Wright family, the Joe Klein family, the Tony McDaniel family, the Charlie Hall family, Jadyn Walden, the Devin Wala family, Janie Winkle, Dr. Luis Coppelli family, Robert and Jo Sanders, Laurie Gullett and the Scott Flake family.
All have hosted exchange students this year through EF Foundation for Foreign Study. Our students are returning to their native country, leaving, but never forgetting their new families and friends who have graciously opened their hearts and homes to them. Thanks to you, these students 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 for welcoming them into the school 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 personally wish to thank the members of the school board 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 students within your midst.
