Ben Hicks and Louise Wilford (2017-2018 seniors) will be headed to Merida, Mexico on May 24!
Evangelical Christian School and the Centro Educativo Blas Pascal, in Merida, Mexico have partnered in a variety of short term and long term academic and cultural exchange programs since 2009, initiated and coordinated by Spanish teacher Dawn Shute. Ben Hicks and Louise Wilford (2017-2018 seniors) will be headed to Merida on May 24 to participate in the Month in Merida program where they will live with a host family, audit three classes, and practice their Spanish in a natural immersion setting. The students' experience gives them a broader understanding of their Christian worldview, confidence in understanding and speaking Spanish, and the opportunity to develop relationships that will last a lifetime. What an amazing opportunity!
