4-Algbna (la.) Upper DM Melnej Tuesday, June 5, 1962 THE SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL is always a full one for any young person, but for one Algona high school graduate, Sonia Roza, the past year has been especially busy. In addition tn the usual studies, final exams, football, basketball games, track meets, proms and hops, Sonia has given 36 speeches at banquets. Girl Scouts, church and club meetings all over the county. She has adjusted to a new way of life far from her native Bogota, Colombia and she has made literally hundreds of new friends. Sonia is this year's exchange student. "EVERYONE HAS BEEN WONDERFUL TO ME". Sonia said, "They made me feel so welcome I didn't have time to be homesick". When asked what she would consider the highlight of her year here, she thought a minute and admitted it was hard to decide. Then she said, "I think it was graduation !" IN THE AUDIENCE AT COMMENCEMENT were Sonia s 'Mom" , and "Dad", Ruth and Mel Bay. They were as proud of their graduate , as if Sonia had been with them as long as their three real daughters. instead of just the past few months. She fits right into their home, ihey \ say, and Sonia in turn has much affection for her Algona family. Her Bogota family consists of her businessman father, her mother who is a psychiatrist, her two older and one younger sisters and her five year I old brother. j SONIA WILL LEAVE ALGONA June 22 for Des Moines There she ! will meet with other American Field Service foreign exchange students for a tour of the United States. There'll be two bus loads of them, ,?5 > students plus two chaperones to a bus and they'll visit New York City and have three days in the nation's capitol: Sonia will leave by plane : from Miami and arrive home about July 15. 1- * f ACCOMPANYING HER ON THE WAY home, as she did on the trip to North America will be a girl who is likely to become a life-long friend of Sonia's. She is from Caracas, Venezuela only a couple of hundred miles from Sonia's home. The other girl was an exchange student this past year at Winterset and they've written frequently during the year. They had never met before Starting the trip to Iowa. JUST AS SONIA HAS TOLD MANY Kossuth county people of her home in Colombia, she will undoubtedly have quite a few things to tell about Algona to her family and friends in Bogota. She'll undoubtedly mention the Iowa snow and cold weather for we had one of the worst winters ever while Sonia was here. The climate is very temperate in Colombia and she had never before seen snow. Even after all the soft, white, fluffy stuff we had this year, Sonia still loves snow ! She may tell them how she learned to cook in homemaking class at Algona high and by using her Algona family, the Bays, as guinea pigs for her efforts. * * * SHE HAS HAD A SAMPLE OF Iowa farm life, for under the sponsorship of the Kossuth Farm Bureau she spent a recent weekend at ihe home of Mr and Mrs Howard Raney. She also visited a mink farm at the Dean Barnes' and a dairy farm at the Hugh Black's. Sonia once lived in the country near Bogota, although her father was never a farmer. * w « SOCIAL LIFE HERE HAS BEEN active for Sonia for she was popular with her schoolmates. She had a date for the highlight of the yuar, the junior-senior prom and a group of senior girls honored her j with a dinner Tuesday night at Van's Cafe. They presented her with a travel clock. She was supposed to have been the guest ol honor at a J school hop recently but the farm weekend, planned several months previously, prevented her from attending. She attended at least one social event that I know of at which she didn't have to speak. It was the Mother-Daughter banquet at First Lutheran church as a guest of \ her "Mom". ' * * * SONIA HAD A CHANCE TO GLIMPSE North American college life during a weekend at Auguslana College in South Dakota where her "sister" Sandra Bay is a student and at Iowa State University at Ames when the seniors went there for Veishea. ALTHOUGH MOST YOUNG PEOPLE go to high school at home and then go away for college, in Sonia Koza's the procedure will be reversed. Her senior year in Algona was thousands of miles from home. When she returns to South America she will enter L'mvi-rsidad (.atolica Javenana tn Bogota — so nearby that she will be able to live at home. She plans to be a psychiatrist, which will take eight \ears of medical training and four to live years of specialization before she is ready to practice. SONIA RO/.A MADE A VERY satisfactory exchange student A lot of her charm, I think, lies in her gracious manner She i, so eiuhu-i- astic about everything that has been done for her. In her talks and 'in visits with her, Sonia was able to give a ver> graphic pi, lure of life in Colombia and surprising enough, there is a lot of -imilam. in many things between it and life here. The American Field Semle -indent exchange plan is wonderful ' I hope it continue.-, here for a n ng time. A (R'lCK LOOK VI Tilt.
