Exchange changes lives

I write this letter today in support of the Chinese Exchange Program with Traverse City Area Public Schools. Last year we had the opportunity to have a lovely young student from China live with us for a short time. The experience was long-lasting for both me and my granddaughter, who became fast friends with the student we hosted.

The program opens doors for students from China to see how Americans live and for our students to have the same opportunity to go and study in China. What an awesome experience. Now our student and others from her school in Dalian, China, are coming back to learn with TCAPS students for a full year.

What a wonderful complement to our school system. This is a great program and I hope it continues and grows. We live in a global world and what better way to bridge our countries together. I appreciate TCAPS for changing our lives.

Clear and honest

I am a young professional here in Traverse City. I use city facilities and services regularly. I also depend on the City Commission to provide me an affordable chance to live within the city limits where I work. I am very supportive of the ideas and platform that Jan Warren has put forth in her campaign for City Commission.

She has been clear and honest about the direction she would take the city if elected. Young adults like myself need city officials like Jan Warren in order to succeed in Traverse City. Check out
