BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
Miguel “JC” Palanca of Bacolod City was one of the exchange students chosen by the Rotary Club of Bacolod East, under its youth exchange program, to represent the Philippines.
Palanca arrived in St. Gallen, Switzerland August 10 and will be studying in Kantonschule for a year.
The other exchange students are Zoe Ratcliffe, John Bryan Souribio and Maia Yusay.
RCBE immediate past president Sonya Verdeflor said yesterday the Rotary Youth Exchange is a program of Rotary International for high school students.
Verdeflor said they send students to other countries where they are expected to promote the Philippines and their city by sharing the culture, education, food, festival and other best practices; and at the same time, learn the culture and best practices of their host country.
The RCBE president is Dr. Benjie Souribio.*CGS
