North Vermilion High School French teacher Michelle Fontenot
is seeking host families for a first year immersion program for French students
in Acadiana. The United States with Meetings and Discoveries Association
operates immersion programs for French high school students in a dozen U.S.
cities, with Lafayette having just been added to the list. Fontenot says
Louisiana’s historical ties to France make Lafayette a natural host city.
Fontenot still is in need of six families to take in students, who will be in
the hub city June 7 - 27. “The only qualification is that you have
a high school age teenager in your home,” she says. “The French students are
excited about coming to Lafayette and this should be a great experience for any
family to establish these international friendships." For more information, visit Fontenot’s Web site or call her at 255-5713.
