Thursday, December 12, 2019 by MARLENE HELLER in School

For the first time in many years, Allentown-West Rotary Club does not have a foreign exchange student participating in the Youth Exchange program this year.

Students are selected the year before and go through a rigorous vetting process.

Unfortunately, she experienced a health emergency and was unable to follow through with her plans.
