Students from Wadleigh Secondary School and the Frederick Douglas Academy II got the chance to visit the Garvey Farm as part of a College For Every Student exchange program with students from Willsboro Central School.
“It was fun to interact with the students because you think that there are going to be all these differences but we are all still teenagers and do a lot of the same things no matter where we live,” Bridge said.
“Every year, it is just fun to watch and see how the students are so quiet at first and it just takes a matter of minutes for them to start bonding,” Willsboro CFES Advisor Marie Blatchley said. “It’s fun for me because I already know what the results are going to be from having seen it happen. Every year there is someone like Tyler that says they find out that they are all just teenagers and going through the same things. It’s great to see the process of the stereotypes being broken down on both sides.”
