Families needed to host exchange student

DOWNEY - The STS Foundation, a non-profit student exchange organization, is searching for host families in Downey to host foreign exchange students.Two of the students in need of host familes come from Denmark and Norway. The Denmark boy is 16 an enjoys sports, especially tennis, and coaches younger children after school. He enjoys skiing with his family and would like to snowboard during his stay in the U.S. The Norway girl is also 16 and enjoys dancing. She has been taking dance lessons since she was a small child. She is a motivated student who hopes to be a midwife one day, officials with STS said. Both students have their own spending money and health insurance. Host families provide a separate bed, family meals and a loving, safe environment. For information on becoming a host family, call Lillian Clemente at (800) 522-4678 or e-mail lillian@stsfoundation.org.
