PEMBROKE - Three Robeson County students have been selected to participate in the People to People Student Ambassador program which is being held in Australia and New Zealand this summer.
But the students need your help getting there. The cost is $6,000 per student, which will include meals, transportation, accommodations and educational activities. The trip will increase the students' understanding of the world and give them the opportunity to learn firsthand about new places and cultures.
The students are Kelly McLees, Jarrett Oxendine and Dakota Oxendine.
McLees is an eighth-grader at Orrum Middle School. She is the daughter of Kirk and Myra McLees of Fairmont and the great-granddaughter of the late Estelle and Grover Hardin of Fairmont.
