Sonora, CA– Several high school students from England are visiting the Mother Lode for the next few weeks.
They are part of Interact, a club in high schools world wide, which allows students to visit a different country and see how another part of the world runs. Since their arrival on Monday, the students have received a real taste for what the Mother Lode and the rest of the United States has to offer.
So far the students have toured many favorite places in the area including Murphys, a trip to Jamestown, the radio station, and they got to see a day in the life of students at Sonora High school, but their favorite part was the play Beauty and the Beast.
After spending three weeks here, the students will return home. Selected high school students in the program in the Mother Lode will receive the same great opportunity by flying to England in July. The students had some great stories to tell, saying that everyone here has been very kind.
