CHS Student Recognized for Being U. S. Youth Ambassador

The Cumberland School Board heard from Cumberland High School senior Preston Sutton, who was chosen to represent the United States as one of nine students from across the country as Youth Ambassadors to Brazil. Preston was selected out of 9,000 applicants to join a U.S. Student Ambassador program. The nine students spent three weeks in May in Brazil and had many learning opportunities. Preston gave an overview of the program and provided details about his experiences in Brazil living with his host family.

The U. S. Youth Ambassador Exchange Program is part of an international nonprofit World Learning, which establishes exchange programs for students and adults to learn about other cultures and apply what they learned to their own countries. Preston thanked his Spanish teacher, Mrs. Martha Olmos, for making him aware of the program and encouraging him to apply.

Preston is the son of Mrs. Stephanie Baldwin of Farmville and Mr. Michael Sutton of Cumberland.
