On Wednesday June 13th, Holmen High School Student Zoe Houghtaling (pronounced Hoteling) presented to Holmen Area Rotary Club a draft of her origins presentation. Zoe is being sponsored by HARC as an outbound foreign exchange student later this summer. Ms. Houghtaling will be traveling to Brazil to stay with a host family for close to a year. The origins presentation is what the student uses to show her host and new friends what her hometown and state are like, along with a description and pictures of her family, school and activities. The Holmen Area Rotary Club has sponsored more than 30 young people both inbound and outbound as foreign exchange students in the 10 short years of being a Rotary Club. These opportunities to experience other cultures first hand promotes a greater understanding of other cultures, build strong multinational friendships and advance world peace.  We wish Zoe safe travels and know that she and her sister Anja represents the best of Holmen.
