Andre Estevez, senior, son of Ellen and Joseph Estevez, both of St. Joseph, will be studying abroad at the Stiftsgymnasium Melk, Austria, during the 2013-14 academic year.
Now in its 48th year, the exchange program at St. John’s Prep began in 1966 and is the oldest one-year high school-level exchange program in the United States. It’s a unique study abroad program, offering students a yearlong/travel study option at the more than 900-year-old Benedictine Abbey of Melk. This program features a full academic curriculum enriched by travel throughout Austria and in other countries in Europe.
Emmerich Sack, German teacher and exchange-program coordinator, said, “This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to immerse themselves in the German language and culture. We are pleased to offer this program, now in its 48th year.”
Christian Gaetz, son of Rose and Rick Gaetz of St. Joseph, was named to the spring semester dean’s list at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities’ College of Science and Engineering. He is majoring in mathematics.
Amanda Faber, St. Joseph, recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Valley City (N.D.) State University.
