Exchange students in need of host families

While 10 federally sponsored foreign exchange students are studying in Wells County this school year, two at Bluffton High School are in need of homes through June 2016 – and those involved in the program sing high praises for the benefits of participation.

“These aren’t your typical exchange students,” said Rebekah Hubley, local coordinator for FLAG (Foreign Links Around the Globe). “These are phenomenal kids. And it’s such a great benefit to Wells County and to the schools to get this diversity in there – and not just any diversity. This is top 1 percent diversity.”
