Jenny & Mike Messner host annual picnic in Pennsylvania for AFS-USA Speedwell Scholars
Jenny and Mike Messner hosted their annual picnic for AFS-USA participants who received full scholarships from the Messners' Speedwell Foundation. In attendance were many of the 30 members of the current Speedwell Scholarship class, along with their families. In addition, more than a dozen alumni of the Speedwell program lent their support and words of advice to those about to start their journeys. Jenny and AFS-USA President Jorge Castro (both AFS Returnees) addressed the attendees, sharing their own study-abroad experiences and offering encouragement to the students about to start their study abroad experience and their families.
