Saying Goodbye to 4-H International Exchange Student

May 16, 2012 marked the end of a 9 month exchange through the FLEX (Future Leaders Exchange) and States’ 4-H International Exchange Program.  The Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) Program gives students (ages 15-17) the chance to live with a host family and attend a U.S. high school for a year.

Our exchange student, Anastasiya came to us from Ukraine on August 11, 2011 to live with a 4-H host family in Burgaw, NC.  What seemed like a long time, flew by quickly!  Anastasiya learned all about 4-H, Pender County, North Carolina, and the United States through her exchange.  She completed over 100 hours of volunteer work and participated in several 4-H teen leadership events.  She gained a lot of valuable experience during the exchange and was really sad to leave!  Anastasiya is the 2nd exchange student that Pender County 4-H has hosted, we also had a Japanese exchange student for 30 days during the summer of 2011.
