by Michael Mattison
GFW High School has quite a number of foreign exchange students this year. There are five spending the year at GFW and all of them are living with host families in Winthrop.
Alessandro Presta is from Rome, Italy. His host mother is Jenny O’Connor of Win-throp. “Rome is a big city and I live very near the center. I’m used to walking a lot of miles to get to school and get to anyplace and here everything is close,” he said. “It is usually much warmer than here and I am freezing in Minnesota.
