Oviedo High Student Receives
International Scholarship Honor

Oviedo High student Craig "Rezzy" Hitchcock has been selected for the U.S.Congress-Bundestag Exchange in Germany for the 2006-2007 school year. He will be taking part in a one year, international, all-expense paid study program funded by the U.S. Congress and German government.

The exchange will involve not only attending a German college preparatory school as a full time student, but also shadowing a member of the German Parliament once a month at the Reichstag or German Capitol, in Berlin.

Rezzy was selected from nearly 400 students from the southeast region for this honor. The criteria was not solely based on GPA, but also a series of evaluations, interviews, grades in German classes, and overall maturity. Former and current teachers were also required to fill out evaluations. This is the first time an Oviedo High School student has won this nationally recognized scholarship.

Mr. Bradley Willis, Oviedo High School German teacher said, "I have no doubt that Rezzy will represent Oviedo High School, the State of Florida, and the United States of America very well in Germany."
