Los Alamos Rotary Youth Exchange Student Lisa Schutt Of Switzerland Presents Program On Academic Year

Youth Exchange student Lisa Schutt of Switzerland, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Los Alamos, presented a program May 14 about her academic year at Los Alamos High School as it now comes to an end. She will return home to Maeinfeld in three weeks. Schutt said that highlights of her year here included making so many new friends in Los Alamos and through Rotary Youth Exchange activities across the state, visiting the Grand Canyon and San Diego, attending Homecoming and being on the Rotary Club float in the parade, and discovering breakfast burritos. Based upon school requirements in Switzerland, she cannot receive credit for her studies in the United States, so she still has two years before completing high school. Maeinfeld, Schutt’s hometown, lies near the Austrian border. It is a very small town, best known as the setting of Johanna Spyri’s beloved novel, Heidi. Photo by Linda Hull
