A Thank You Note To The Town Of Pittsfield

Pittsfield Exchange Students.jpg

Ifreet, Ula, and Aimen, the Pittsfield Exchange Students.


Learning last year that we had earned scholarships from the US State Department to study in America seems so long ago now. After spending months of taking English tests, traveling great distances to interviews, and waiting for what felt like ages to hear, our wildest dreams were all of a sudden granted. 


There we were, last August, boarding planes for the unknown. Leaving our home countries bound for America was not easy, but thanks to this welcoming town, we found the strength and courage to fall in love with Pittsfield and make it our second home.


As our senior year draws to a close, so does our exchange year. We are excited to see our families again, but very sad to be leaving at the same time.  We will be taking back so many great memories, like our first basketball tournament, first drama performance, first Prom, best friends, and so much more.


But none of this would have been possible without the wonderful people here.  For that we want to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who helped make our experience so amazing, and we know this year will live in our hearts forever. 


Of course our biggest thanks goes out to our loving host families and the fantastic Pittsfield Middle High School administration, teachers, staff, and school board for giving us the best year of our lives and an incredible insight into American life and culture.  We would also like to thank Jack’s Pizza and Ping Garden for making us feel so at home and for helping us along the way.


We hope you all enjoyed learning about our countries and cultures, and are proud to have been your 2014-2015 Pittsfield exchange students from Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan.  We will call ourselves ‘Pittsfield Panthers’ forever!


We hope that some of you out there might open your hearts and families up for the next school year so the program can continue. Students like Ana from Bosnia, a 17 year old girl who likes hiking, camping, painting, animals, and sewing, or Iyad from Jordan, a 16 year old boy who likes soccer, basketball, baseball, and camping, would love to have the same opportunities we had this year.  If you want to learn more about hosting a student, call our Community Coordinator Kris Hales at 269-7760 or e mail her at [email protected]
