Ryan Szafran Selected for Exchange Program
RHS sophomore Ryan Szafran has been selected to participate in the year-long Congress-Bundestag exchange program.
He will go to Washington D.C. and meet with a congressional delegation. He will then travel to Germany and participate in a Language Camp. He is then placed with a German family and will go to a German school for a year. During the course of the year, Ryan will be representing Rockwall HS at the Bundestag (German Parliament), and at his new school. I can think of few better candidates for this program.
