Anthony Pearson, a 12th grade student at Hopkins County Central High School was recently interviewed and accepted to participate as a member of the People to People Student Ambassador Program to Europe this summer.  The objective of the program is to promote international understanding while building leadership skills among America's youth.  The 20 day  experience includes meetings with government officials, interaction with other students, educational activites and home stays with host families.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower founded the organization in 1956.  He believed that if people from different cultures could come together in peace and friendship, so eventually would countries.  Since its founding, People to People has launched many international programs, including Sister Cities and Project Hope.
