Recently the Kiwanis Club hosted a breakfast for all the exchange students currently attending Payson High School. The students introduced themselves, spoke about their countries, their schools, hobbies and why they chose to be an exchange student.
The students also explained their favorite experiences in Payson.
Club members explained the many projects in which the Kiwanis Club participates and invited the student to look for Kiwanis in their home countries when they return next year.
Payson Unified School District Superintendent Ron Hitchcock explained the impact the exchange students have on the student body as they bring their culture to the community.
The group talked about volunteer opportunities for the exchange students.
If anyone wants more information on the needs for volunteers in the community, please contact local coordinators, Edie Miller at (928) 951-4871 or Janet Nossek at (928) 595-0395 of the EF Foundation for Foreign Study.
