Marshall student selected for People to People program
Taylor Moede, a student at Marshall High School, has been accepted into the People to People Student Ambassador Program, an educational travel program founded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Moede will explore Australia for 17 days this summer as a member of the southwestern Minnesota delegation. By participating in the Boomerang itinerary, Moede can earn academic credit while getting to know the people, culture and history of the places visited. She will take part in a variety of activities such as a community service project, snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef, climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge and participating in a ceremonial feast with the Maori people in New Zealand.
After being invited to enroll, Moede submitted letters of recommendation and successfully completed an interview process. Before departing, she will attend several orientation meetings with program leaders and fellow delegates to learn about the destination and prepare for the journey. Moede will travel under the leadership of Andrea Williams, a teacher-leader from Mankato.
