Hosting an exchange student is rewarding

For the past five years, Audra Locke has been an area representative for ASSE International Student Exchange Programs. Working with foreign exchange students has been incredibly rewarding for her and her family.

ASSE student Nele from Germany, who lived with the Weilbacher family in Poth, said, “I had the time of my life in America. I made a great experience and had the best year ever. Nobody is ever gonna be able to take these wonderful memories, these awesome people, and the tons of fun I had.”

Locke has already placed four students for the 2014-15 school year: a German boy and Moldovan girl at Pleasanton High School, a German girl at McMullen County High School, and a German boy at Clemens High School in Schertz. Her family will host a British boy who will attend Jourdanton High School.

As of July 14, ASSE still has 134 students to place in the South. Consider hosting a student and see your world through the eyes of a foreigner. The bond you will form with the student will last a lifetime, Locke said.

Basic requirements for hosting are:

•A bed of their own (sharing a room with same-sex sibling within four years of their age is fine)

•Transportation to and from school and school activities (a bus is fine)

•Three meals a day (provided, not necessarily prepared).

For more information, call Locke at 830-570-0187.
