Off to Spain
Hollis-Brookline Rotary sends Timberlane Regional student to Spain

Because the district does not have a formal student exchange program, Miller’s trip is being sponsored by the Hollis-Brookline Rotary Club. However, Miller said she is hoping her trip will help pave the way for the district to establish an exchange program in the future.
“Two years ago I had the idea that instead of going abroad in college, it might be possible in high school,” she said.
Miller said studying abroad was not an option through the school district or the local Rotary Club.
“I’ll be taking classes with other students and will be completely immersed in Spanish,” she said. “The city has 1.5 million people, so it’s obviously very different from our towns. That’s part of the idea, to go someplace completely different.”
“That’s very new by European standards,” said Miller.
The school year in Seville is about the same length as the school year in New Hampshire, and Miller said she will be returning home next summer.
“It doesn’t just have an effect on us as students, it also has an effect on the community, the families and the schools,” she said.
“We are very proud of you,” he told Miller. “You will bring so much back to us.”
