Exeter-Milligan Update: Exeter-Milligan Receives Excellence Award

Exeter-Milligan High School has received national recognition for excellence in global education from EF High School Exchange Year, the leader in high school exchange.

The EF High School Exchange Year Global Education Excellence Award is presented annually to high schools that demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to international understanding and global awareness.

“Exeter-Milligan has shown an outstanding commitment to offering a global education,” said Dan Sodervall of EF High School Exchange Year. “By welcoming exchange students into the classrooms, they created new and unique learning opportunities not just for the exchange students, but for the American students and faculty as well.”

This year, Exeter-Milligan welcomed 2 EF High School Exchange Year exchange students.  A total of 6 students have been welcomed over the past three years.  Each of these students has returned to their home countries with wonderful memories and positive feelings toward the communities, the people and the school of Exeter-Milligan. Exeter-Milligan is recommended as a place to go by students who have been a part of the EF exchange year in Nebraska.  The warm caring welcome EF students receive from the school and its staff is the key reason students love their time in the US.  Exeter-Milligan High School continues to be a great ambassador.
