The two Youth For Understanding (YFU) exchange students have left Spring Grove this week, after spending the past 11 months living in Spring and attending Spring Grove High School as members of the Senior Class of 2013.

Tanguy de Monval of Colombes, France, was hosted by the Todd and Lisa Bornholdt family and Johanna Koch of Eslohe, Westphalia Germany, was hosted by the Joe and Marlene Deschler family.

Both students were involved in many school and community activities during their stay.

In August, Frida Bryn of Solbergelva, Norway, will arrive to become a member of the 2014 Senior Class of Spring Grove High School. She will be hosted by David and Rachel Storlie. Frida's father was hosted by Lee and Gayle Grippen (Rachel's parents) during the 1977-1978 school year in Caledonia.

Families are needed for new YFU students arriving in August for the new school year. Please contact Lee Grippen in Caledonia for further information about hosting at (507) 725-3281 or (507) 450-4534.
