Teens chosen for trek to sister city

Five will participate in student exchange

by Dolores Fox Ciardelli

Five Pleasanton students have been selected to participate in this year's Summer Exchange Program with sister-city Tulancingo, Mexico. The students are Athena Lathos and Becca Brown from Foothill High School, and Nayo Clinchard, Andre Chan and Kathy Yuh from Amador Valley High School.

More than 85 members of the Pleasanton/Tulancingo Sister City Association (PTSCA) gathered to meet them at an early Cinco de Mayo party on Sunday, May 2. The sister-city delegation of 28 had just returned from its annual visit and had lots of pictures and fun experiences to share with them.

The students also received information packets prepared by their counterpart students coming here. They will be arriving from Mexico in mid-June to stay for four weeks, and the Pleasanton students will return with them for four weeks in Tulancingo.

Several of past Pleasanton exchange students also were there, from as long ago as 2001, to wish them well and share how much this special exchange program has meant to them.

More information can be found at www.ptscaexchange.org or call Alice Pryor, PTSCA president, at 462-5786.
