LINDEN — Two Linden High School students were the recent recipients of grants from the Board of Directors of the German American Partnership Program, Inc., headquartered in New York City. The grant allows the students to participate in Linden High School’s exchange program with Butzbach, Germany, located approximately 20 miles north of Frankfurt.
Linden High School has had an ongoing exchange program with the Weidigschule (Weidig School) since 2001. To date, just fewer than 100 Linden High students have had the opportunity to live and attend school in Germany for three weeks over their spring break.
In addition to traveling to Germany, the students, senior Justyna Kepa and junior Megan Hirsch, each hosted a German student in their home this fall. Both students are International Baccalaureate candidates.
The IB program is designed to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
