Pat and Bob Walrath took the Stow Independent to El Salvador to visit Bob’s sponsored boy, Josue, and former sponsored boy, Pedro. Bob sponsors Josue through Unbound (formerly the Christian Foundation for Children and Aging) of Kansas City, KS. Here they are at Unbound’s El Salvador headquarters in Santa Ana with Josue holding the Stow Independent. From the Left are Pedro’s younger brother Marco, Pedro’s mother Hannah, Pedro (now a chef), Bob, Josue, Pat, and Josue’s grandmother Maria.
Au Revoir Chieftains! Three of the nineteen students visiting from Normandy, France took one last picture with their NRHS hosts. The three Chieftains are Halle Hangen, Christine Luke and Sophia Greszczuk. Two of the three French scholars are Olga and Justine. The third unnamed French scholar is an Honored Guest.
The French students took the Stow Independent to travel to NYC then back to Normandy. We are awaiting with bated breath to receive further photos from the future!
The Stow Independent went to London with Matthew and Evan Medcraft to visit Stamford Bridge, the home stadium of the Chelsea Football Club ( go Blues !). The trip also included a visit to Ajax Stadium in Amsterdam (not as nice as Stamford bridge) and a Castles of the Rhine River cruise from Basel, Switzerland to Amsterdam.
