AFS Student is Soroptimist Student of the Month

In January, Soroptimist of Rio Vista welcomed Samuele Franceschetti as Student of the Month. Sam is in Rio Vista as an AFS Exchange Student. He attends Rio Vista High School, and was nominated for this honor by the Graphic Design department; his teacher Julie Griffin accompanied him to a Soroptimist luncheon.

Sam comes to Rio Vista from Varese, a town near Milan, Italy. He lived with the family of Molly and Tony Coito for his first semester here, and now is hosted by the Dan and Kathy Francis family.

Sam enjoys American football and played on the RVHS varsity team last fall. He also likes swimming and wrestling. He is active in the Interact club and AFS. He reports that his favorite school subjects are math and the sciences. After he finishes at RVHS, Sam will return to Italy to complete his last year of school before entering University; he hopes to study both in Italy and Japan.

Rio Vista Soroptimists are pleased to be part of the friendly welcome Sam reports he has received, and to recognize him as Student of the Month.
