North Huron students heading to Uganda

Three North Huron students will have an experience of a lifetime when they travel to Uganda in January with a national exchange program. Faith Yageman, Elizabeth Trudeau and Raegan Gembarski will be part of Foreign Links Around the Globe’s (FLAG’s) first group to do a short-term outbound program in the country of Uganda with the focus on agriculture. Gembarksi, Yageman and Trudeau will join two other students from Lapeer County in this historic outbound program.

The students will be involved in meeting with Ugandan farmers, visiting local villages, teaching classes about american agriculture and experiencing a national wildlife refuge.

The cost of travel is considerable and the students will be hosting a fundraiser to help with the costs. There will be a bowling fundraiser on Saturday at Biff’s Bowling Bar in Kinde.
