What they are saying...
He's a great kid!
I have known Kezrion for about 9 years and have been around to watch him grow up and become a very kind, outgoing and SMART young man. He has a lot of drive and ambition for a 12 year old. His sprit and desire to learn sets him apart from other kids I have been around and I believe that Kezrion is very deserving of this trip and opportunity of a lifetime!"

Student Selected for People to People Student Ambassador Program!
Changing a child's world is paramount to changing a world of children!
Kezrion , a middle school student has been accepted into the People to People Student Ambassador Program, an educational travel program founded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Kez will explore Australia for 15 days in summer 2011 as a member of the local delegation. By participating in the Exploring Australia itinerary, Kez can earn academic credit while getting to know the people, culture and history of the places visited. He will take part in a variety of activities such as snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef with a marine biologist, climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge, enjoying a ceremonial feast with the Aboriginal people and staying with a Station family!
Acceptance into the People to People Student Ambassador Program is an honor!
After being invited to enroll, Kez submitted letters of recommendation and successfully completed an interview process. Before departing he will attend several orientation meetings with program leaders and fellow delegates to learn about the destination and prepare for the journey.
Kez will travel under the leadership of several school teachers whom have participated in this program over a combined 40 years! The group will be met upon arrival by a local delegation manager who coordinates the cultural and recreational excursions and is familiar with local customs. President Eisenhower founded People to People during his presidency in 1956 with citizen leaders including entertainer Bob Hope, Olympic champion Jesse Owens, amusement entrepreneur Walt Disney and Hallmark Cards founder Joyce Hall. Having served as a military commander, Eisenhower believed that ordinary citizens of different nations could make a difference where governments could not. People to People Student Ambassador Programs is based in Spokane, Washington, and has been coordinating educational travel for over 50 years.
