A WHS student is seeking funding to study abroad.
Junior Falisha Willier is in search of funds to study abroad through the American Field Study Homestay Program. Willier hopes to spend 4-6 weeks in this program in Tuscany, Italy during the summer of 2019.
Willier will fly to Rome and attend a week long language camp before driving to Tuscany where she will live with a host family. She is hoping to take a lot from this experience. “I just want to learn new cultures because I feel like we’re a little unexposed to other cultures,” Willier said. “It also looks really good for college.”
The program alone will cost $8,650 which does not include airline fees and transportation. Willier has planned many activities and fundraisers to raise money for the trip. This Saturday, November 10, Willier will have an Italian Dinner at the Alma Community Center from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Cost is $5 for adults and $3 for kids 10 and under. Spaghetti, garlic bread, salad and a dessert will be served. Willier also plans to host a Paws with a Clause holiday photo shoot for pets and a Parents Night Out event where childcare will be provided for parents wanting a night out.
