Osmond Foreign Exchange program honored

OHS receives foreign exchange award

Osmond High School has received national recognition for excellence in global education from EF High School Exchange Year, the leader in high school exchange.

The EF High School Exchange Year Global Education Excellence Award is presented annually to high schools that demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to international understanding and global awareness. OHS was one of a select group of high schools and districts recognized across the United states for the 2017-2018 school year.

“OHS has shown an outstanding commitment to offering a global education,” said Bob Fredette, President of EF High School Exchange year. “By welcoming exchange students into classrooms, OHS has created new and unique learning opportunities for not just the exchange students, but for the American students and faculty as well.”

This year, OHS welcomed two EF High School Exchange Year exchange students. The first is Antonia Von Meer, whose host parents are Ross and Miriam Stelling. She is from Hamburg, Germany. Louis Muschter, whose host parents are Brad and Marla Huwaldt, is also an exchange student; he’s from near Dresden, Germany.

Not only were the students accepted into the school, but they became an integral part of the school’s academic and extracurricular life and involved in the greater community in the exchange experience.

Local exchange coordinator Luella Hodson added, “We thank OHS for welcoming this year’s students from around the globe. The community and visiting students shared an unforgettable experience thanks to the generosity of the school administration, teachers, students, and families.”

Headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, EF High School Exchange Year has been committed to promoting international understanding and global awareness for over thirty years.

The organization brings more students to the US each year than any other high school exchange program.

Since 1979, the program has matched more than 100,000 enthusiastic students from around the world with caring host families across the country.
