Ideas, old and new, connect in bright young minds. Students and teachers connect within nimble learning/teaching interactions. Personalities connect and lifelong friendships flourish. Students connect with their own strengths and challenges, and grow in character, intellect, and ability.
Keystone’s high school Model UN and WorldQuest teams enjoyed a lunchtime presentation by U.S. Foreign Service Officer Bridget Gerston. Dr Gerston spoke on her life in the diplomatic service, including her adventures and travels, which included Russia, Tunisia, and Afghanistan. She also spoke about internships at the State Department for high school/college students and potential careers after school. After her presentation, she held a Q&A. Model UN sponsor, Dr Caraway, was especially pleased to welcome a fellow alum of the Fulbright program and amateur of Italy and the Italian language. After the presentation, Mr Spedding and several students continued the conversation over lunch at La Fonda.
