St. Lucie Schools middle school students to be student ambassadors

St. Lucie Schools middle school students to be student ambassadors

Ten students who will represent St. Lucie County in the middle school delegation for the People to People outreach program from St. Lucie County Schools were presented at the April 10, 2012, St. Lucie County School Board meeting. Desiree Hitchmon-Houghton, Teacher Delegation Leader at St. Lucie West K-8 School, will be traveling with the students from the Middle School Delegation to France, Italy and Greece this summer. The People to People program was founded by President Eisenhower in 1956 with the mission of promoting peace through understanding. He believed that if people of different countries came together and learned from one another they would promote peace better than governments could. Students travel as People to People Student Ambassadors to share ideas and learn firsthand how to become better global citizens. Pictured, front row, from left, Emily Marie Perez, Demi Perez, Robert Gilliom Jr, Amelia Stackwell, Myles Tullis, Jordan Wilkerson, Destyne Bailey, and Logan Coker. Back row, from left, Superintendent Michael Lannon, School Board chairman Carol Hilson, Malyk Payne, Alexander Snure and Ms. Houghton.
