Did You Know?

Did you know Westbrook High School hosted its first foreign exchange student during the 1956-1957 school year?

According to the 1957 City of Westbrook's annual report, Westbrook resident Rudolph Greep hosted Marcus Rauh of St. Gallen, Switzerland. And the Westbrook Rotary Club (now the Westbrook-Gorham Rotary) and the American Field Service sponsored the exchange.

John, you are a research guru. I don't know where and how you find all this stuff. It is great that someone keeps Westbrook's history documented.

It is ashame that we did not find Marcus Rauh in 2007 and welcome him "home" to Westrbook like a conquering hero to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the program.

Perhaps it is not too late.
