These students and their families will welcome ninth-grade student ambassadors from Shiso in early October.

The Sequim-Shiso Student Ambassador exchange began in 1995 and is sponsored by the Sequim-Shiso Sister City Association with cooperation from the Sequim School District.

Adult chaperones for the eight-10 day trip are needed.
