We wish you a good trip, Molly!
Molly Lovejoy, one of our Ocracoke High School students, leaves today for Austria. She will be staying there for an entire year as an exchange student sponsored by Youth For Understanding.
Over the last twenty years we have had numerous exchanges between Ocracoke School and Europe, Asia, Australia, and South America. Molly's sister Emma recently spent a year in Denmark; my daughter Amy went to Germany as one of the island's first exchange students.
Molly, we wish you well on your new and exciting adventure in Europe. We'll miss you, but know you will have one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. Be sure to keep us posted now and then about life in Austria.
