I 6 - Mukflteo Beacon - June 21, 2006 "9 High school students from around the world are heading for Mukilteo. "The students will in- tegrate themselves into a Mukilteo family with the goal of experiencing American culture as an American high school student does," says a spokesman for the STS Foun- dation, which administers the student-exchange program. "In turn they provide m- sight into their own culture, beyond the tidbits that can be gleaned from secondhand ref- erences. This is the essence of student exchange." The STS Foundation, a non- profit student exchange orga- nization, has been adminis- tering the student-exchange program for 20 years. "We look forward to finding new host families in Mukilteo and connecting them with ex- TS IN ,change students like Giulia," the spokesman says. "Giulia is a lovely 16-year- old girl from Italy who loves playing piano, listening to music, skiing, and going for a walk with her dog. She is very outgoing and open-minded." Another exchange student, Michel, is described as an 18- year-old Swiss boy who loves music and mountain climb- ing. He participated in the Ice Climbing World Champion- ship earlier this year. Students have their own spending money and insur- ance. Families interested in be- ing a host family for one of the exchange students is asked to call Lillian at 1-(800)- 522-4678 or email lillian@sts- foundation.org. The foundation's website is at www.stsfoundation.org THE NEWS Students of" the Month x.Kzm.K.e.Pc.h r' The following students were selected by Kamiak staff as Students of the Month for May 2006, due to their outstanding academics, school and/or community leadership and activities and/or athletics.
