Dani, our Colombian exchange student, is now staying with her new host parents, Ellen and Allen Newberg. She also celebrated her 18th birthday two weeks ago, and she had the chance to visit with her best friend from Colombia where they explored Canada together. 
Our 2016-17 exchange student will be Matej Kunak from the Slovak Republic.  He comes with an impressive bio — academics, sports, piano, multiple languages.  Patti (our youth exchange officer) highly encourages Rotarians to consider being host parents. You do not need to have children at home to be a host parent.
