TELL CITY – Loren Braunecker, a student at Tell City Junior-Senior High School, will travel to Europe later this month after being accepted as a People to People student ambassador.
The People to People organization is a national educational travel program founded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Braunecker will depart June 24 to explore England, France and Italy for 18 days as a member of the Cincinnati, Ohio delegation. By participating in the Exploring in Europe program, Braunecker can earn academic credit while getting to know the people, culture and history of the places she visits.
She will take part in a variety of activities, which include touring the Louvre Museum in Paris, viewing the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, rappelling down a castle wall in Assisi and admiring the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. Part of the experience will also be a home stay with a family in Italy and participation in a service project with her host family.
Braunecker will be a junior at Tell City Junior-Senior High School. Her other activities include playing the mellophone with the Marching Marksmen and being a member of the girls’ swimming team. She also plays French horn and received a Level One gold rating at the district solo contest this past year. She is a member of the Perry County Community Foundation’s Power of Youth Council and is involved in 4-H. She is the daughter of Scott and Kelli Braunecker of rural Cannelton.
