Letter: Pleasant exchange

June 18, 2014 

My name is Lucia Calderon, and I am an exchange student from Spain, sponsored by PAX. I came to Kennewick in August, and I have been living with the Melior family. I'm attending Kamiakin High School.

I wanted to express how thankful I am. First., I'd like to say thank you so much to my wonderful host family, host mum, Karla, host dad, Dan, and host sister Kayleen. I am so lucky to have them. They opened their home and have shared love every day, treating me like part of the family, and I will always be grateful.

Thank you also to Kamiakin High School and all the people who work there, helping the students to be great people and always do their best.

Thank you so much to my PAX community coordinator, Elena Brown, who worked hard to find me an awesome host family and high school. She has been always there. If you want to be a host next year, call Elena Brown at 509-438-1565.

I'd like to thank the nice people and friends here.They have involved me in the community and have been interested in me and my country and in making Kennewick my second home.

I hope other PAX exchange students can have this great experience in Kennewick. I will miss and remember this experience always.

Thank you.
