Horseheads High Students visit the Corning Youth Center

 

IMG_1719 (500x375)Horseheads High  School Senior Josh invited his fellow classmates Eric and Rotary  Exchange student Max from Austria to meet with 30 students at the Corning Youth Center where he volunteers.  The students got a chance to talk with Max about how it is to live away from home for 9 months.  They had a map available for him to discuss where he is from in Austria,  Max dressed in traditional Austrian clothing called Lederhosen’s, he played 5 songs on his Accordion and spoke German with the students.   Eric discussed how he will be an outbound exchange student leaving for Portugal in August to live there for the next school year.  The students got a chance to hear not only about students from around the world coming here but also where our local students can travel to as well.   It was a great experience for everyone and the students really enjoyed the cultural exchange.  Nice job to Max,  Eric, and Josh.
