Central Celebrates Culture with Exchange Program Event

Mr. Marco and two students holding up posters

Mr. Marcu, a Central High staff member, took a day off to set up tables with individual posters for each of Central’s exchange students, representing and honoring cuisine and culture from Ukraine, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Jordan, and Cameroon. Students, staff, host parents, and exchange coordinators were invited, and exchange students shared information and ethnic dishes. Guests then signed the students’ posters so that they each have a memento to take with them when they go home in a few weeks. Originally from Romania, Mr. Marcu understands the conflicted emotions involved with being so far from home and yet saying goodbye to such an exciting and unique experience in the United States.
