Staff Report

Today’s Friday Photo follows a resident of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati all the way to Germany.

Moeller High School student Riley Jones received a free study trip to Germany after placing above the 90th percentile on the AATG National German Exam, which allowed him to apply and interview for a spot. Approximately 35 students were selected across the nation.

Jones was placed with a family for three weeks in Kulmbach, Germany where he attended school with his host brother, but went on various excursions.

According to a Moeller press release, the opportunity would not have been possible without the passion and devotion of Moeller faculty member, Linda Zins-Adams. Zins-Adams had the opportunity to visit Germany as well and received a $2,000 Euro stipend after being named Outstanding German Educator in America by AATG and the Checkpoint Charlie Foundation.

In the photo above, Jones is seen taking in a view of the countryside in Kulmback, Germany.
