POLAND – Megan Miles, a student at Bakerstown in Poland, has been accepted into the People to People Student Ambassador Program, an educational travel program founded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Miles will explore France, Italy and Greece for 20 days in the summer of 2005 as a member of the Maine delegation.

By participating in the European Odyssey itinerary, Miles can earn academic credit while getting to know the people, culture and history of the places visited. She will take part in a variety of activities.

Acceptance into the Student Ambassador Program is an honor. After being invited to enroll, Miles submitted letters of recommendation and completed an interview process. Before departing she will attend several orientation meetings with program leaders and fellow delegates to learn about the destination and prepare for the journey.

Miles will travel under the leadership of Jane S. Willett, a teacher-leader from Gorham. The delegation also is led by Erin Babbin, who teaches in New Gloucester and Regan J. Goan, a teacher in Raymond. The group will be met upon arrival by a local delegation manager who coordinates the cultural and recreational excursions and is familiar with local customs.

People to People Student Ambassador Programs is based in Spokane, Wash., and has been coordinating educational travel for nearly 50 years.
