Vallivue junior, was airpark anliclpaling her riiijhl lo Australia for a year's slay as an'lnlernational Exchange Student through Die Rnlary Club's s|ionsorshi|i K}' .Marie I), (ialytai, Krw PJWS Family Editor NAMPA - Nol every high school sludent gets a trip ID Australia for her birthday. And although il wasn't exactly a present. Stephanie Clvens. a junior at Vallivue High School, did arrive in Ihe "Land Down Under" the day before her 17th birthday. Stephanie, Ihe daughter of Mr. and Mrs, Jaek Givcns. was selected to parlicipale in the liotary Club-sponsored International Student Exchange afler submitting an application and going Ihrough a screening procedure in Salt Lake City. IVIicn interviewed here just prior lo her departure she was very excited about the (rip. She admitted Britain had been her first choice, and she also had been interested in visiting Japan, but "the committee in charge of smdenl placement tries to send the young people lo appropriate areas," she reported. "1 guess they thought I was too lall lo 'fit in' willi the people of Japan," Stephanie confided with a twinkle. "When 1 applied il sounded like a lot of fun. But once I knew 1 had been accepted, well, 1 had second thoughts, of course." She wenl on (o explain. "II was really hard lo leave my family and friends. But 1 love to travel - I always liavc." And travel she has! Her flight took 10 hours anil crossed the International Dateline, thereby losing a day that she will not regain until her -..'^n (o the li.S. nexl year. Stephanie will live with three different volunteer Rotary families in Aloruya while she is in Australia, two of whom live right nn llu- coast with Ihe beach literally in their backyard. Thisshould be quite a change far a Kirl from land-locked Idaho. Her course of study has been worked out, she said, and approved by her principal al Vallivue, so that she will.not lose any credils. She will return for the second half o! her senior year and graduate with her own class. She expressed regret that she would miss some of her senior class activities but an opportunity like this was not one Stephanie coultl pass up. Stephanie inherits her adventuresome nature, perhaps, from her great grandfather an early Nampa pioneer, who homestcadcd in Ihe area which stiJI hears his name - Givens Springs. Stephanie, anil ,",f, u;her Notary-sponsored exchange students bound for New Zealand as well as Australia, met in Los Angeles for the light. Stephanie, who has pen pals all over the world, including Japan, Norway and England, also has three'in Australia. "I'm really Imping lo meet them while I'm here," she said "it's probably a once-in-a- hfelimo chance!" She also expressed her -sincere gratitude to the Kotary Clubs which have made this entire program possible. Stephanie, who is an'honor student, (al east a high It average is required lo be in the Kotary* exchange student program) ad- milted she would miss her choir, piano and guitar studies, but she was obviously Ino thrilled iihnut the trip to look back with any lingering regrets. So. as Nampa .shivered Ihrough its wintry February and March snows, Slcphanie Givens celebrated her 17lh birthday in Ihe warm ocean breezes of an Australian summer. rer's billboard W ill canning jar lids be here? |_ I f 6Sty 16 lly.leaniie I.PSP A limel; reminder from Jlcnmc A Holler.
