Secretary Kerry recognizes two local schools for exchange program efforts


U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry recently commended several schools from across the nation, including two right here in Milwaukee, for their efforts in hosting high school foreign exchange students.

MPS' Rufus King High School and Wauwatosa West High School both received nods from Secretary Kerry for their roles in hosting exchange students and, in part, supporting public diplomacy efforts.

"By opening their doors to host exchange students, these schools are providing all students with opportunities to increase their global awareness and cultural understanding as they continue on the path towards becoming global citizens and the kind of leaders this world needs," said Jorge Castro, president and partner director of AFS-USA (formerly the American Field Service), in a written statement.
