Interact and East High Participate in Cultural Exchange

Holding a piglet!

Members of the Albion High School Interact Club hosted students from Rochester’s East High School as part of a "cultural exchange."

East High students spent the day shadowing Albion students, learning about our school, life in a rural area, and ways that they can "learn from each other as we push past stereotypes."

Poverty Hill Farms toured students through their farm, showed them the milking process and even let them hold a piglet. After, students sampled home made ice cream.     

Last spring Albion students visited East High students and experienced life in an urban area.

The AHS Interact Club initiated the program eight years ago.

Students enjoyed looking at farm equipment. 

 

Holding a piglet was a highpoint of the visit.
