Mother of exchange student praises Grayson citizens


July 3, 2013 — The editor:

    I would like to highlight patriotism and human qualities of many people from Grayson.

    I am a mother of a girl from the Czech Republic, Europe. My daughter Michaela received the chance to experience one of the biggest and most important countries of the world - your homeland.

    Thanks to the amazing couple, Rhonda and Anthony Rogers, my daughter's dreams came true.

    Rogers opened their home to her as a host family in Student Exchange Program and let her experience American culture, values and lifestyles.

    They showed in truth, that Americans are hospitable, fair, honest and proud people.

    As well, all my daughter's teachers in East Carter High School, her friends, schoolmates and neighbors were very friendly and heartfelt.

    In my opinion all people met by Michaela in the USA were the best evidence of American qualities and merits. Indeed, you can be proud of them!
