Congratulations, Kyle Parham



Kyle Parham, 11th grade student at Woodbury Jr.-Sr. High School, has been selected to be a Student Ambassador for People to People. Kyle went through a selection process that involved an interview and a requirement to submit three letters of recommendation -- two teachers and one community leader.

People to People was started by Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1958. His dream was to bring together students from around the world to promote world peace.

Over the summer Kyle will spend a total of three weeks in France, Italy, and Greece (where he will stay with a host family). The People to People hope is that this experience will help students return to their community and school with a new outlook on the world and help to build bridges to bring us closer together through peace and understanding.

Congratulations, Kyle.
