6 - Hinton News Tues. March 27, 2012 Area Host Famili Needed Foreign high school students are scheduled to arrive soon for academic semester program homestays, and the sponsoring organization, Pacific Intercultural Exchange (P.I.E), needs a few more hosts. Americans mentor international teenagers and provide a caring environment, a room and daily meals. P.I.E. area representatives match students with host families by finding common interests and lifestyles through an informal in- home meeting. Prospective host families are able to review student information to select the perfect match. There is no such thing as a typical host family. One can be married, single, retired, with children or no children. The international teenagers are ages 15- 18 years old, have their own spending money, are academically strong, speak English well enough to attend a public high school, and are waiting to hear from a friendly American. The international students have accident and health insurance and are anxious to share their cuitural experiences with their new American families. P.I.E. currently has programs to match almost every family&apos;s needs, ranging in length from a semester to a full academic year, where the students attend local high schools. Families who host for P.I.E. are also eligible to claim a $50 Hinton First United Methodist Women Meet The Hinton First United Methodist Women met Thursday, March 15 at 1 p.m. with Martha Gilbert on Temple Street.
