The Shoreview Einhausen Sister City Association recently awarded scholarships
to two German students from Mounds View High School. Siblings Zoe and Jett
Brownlee will participate in a tour to Germany this summer which includes staying
in the homes of Einhausen residents. The tour runs from June 20th-July 7th with
six days spent in Einhausen.
2019 marks the 30th year since Mounds View and Irondale German students
began participating in summer tours to Germany with home stays in Einhausen.
An estimated 700 students have participated in the program over the years.
Former Mounds View High School German teacher, Cheryl Wason has been
instrumental in fostering this exchange.
German students from the Mounds View District will join another group of German
students from Ohio for a bus tour in Southern Germany and Austria. Highlights of the
tour include Rothenburg, Munich on bikes, Eagle’s Nest and hiking in the Bavarian Alps
as well as Salzburg, Linz and Vienna. German teachers Jill Hallenberger (Irondale H. S.)
and former German teacher Cheryl Wason will lead students on this trip.
The Shoreview Einhausen Sister City Association (SESCA) provides scholarships for Mounds View
District high school students interested in attending the Concordia College German Language
camps located near Bemidji, Minnesota or participating in tours to Germany led by German
teachers with home stays in Einhausen.
Congratulations to Our Winners!
