Lauren Burrows year 13 has been selected, along with Ben McCormick, to represent Antrim and Newtownabbey on the 2017 Student Exchange programme in Gilbert, Arizona.

Lauren and Ben will travel to Gilbert on June 19 and will spend three weeks experiencing the Gilbert way of life. They will return to the borough on July 10, accompanied by their exchange partners, Adison McIntosh and Bryson Jones, to start the Antrim and Newtownabbey part of the exchange.

The council’s volunteering partner this year is Belfast Lough Sailability. Ben and Lauren have been volunteering with Sailability in the run-up to the exchange and will continue throughout the programme.
