International Exchange Student Host Family Needed: We still have one student who is still in need of a permanent host family. Binh from Vietnam is attending CTA for his senior year of High School. He is with a welcome family, but would like to be placed with a local family in the school district. He enjoys playing soccer, sports, hanging out with friends and watching American movies. He likes to play with children, or just hang out and entertain himself.For more information you can contact the ECEP office at 616-951-7010 or email us at ecep@ecepnet.org.
