2014 High School Student Exchange

April 2014

There were five high school students from Sanda City, Japan who came to visit Kittitas County from April 2, 2014 to April 4, 2014. They were accompanied by their English teacher, as well as their assistant English teacher who is also a college student. Each student stayed with a host family and experienced many activities during their short visit. They took part in a fly fishing demonstration from Worley Bugger and tried their hand at tying their own fly’s; a walking tour of downtown Ellensburg; making their own pizza’s at Cornerstone Pie and attend classes at Ellensburg High School for a full day.
