Moises Pedroza decided America would be a great place to become more fluent in English.
The soft-spoken Colombian 16-year-old is attending Rockwood High School this year as an exchange student.
“I chose this place because nobody speaks Spanish here,” Pedroza said. “In Colombia, English is very important for college work and jobs.”
He’s staying with Rockwood High School Principal Alan Reed, who has hosted numerous exchange students, including Moises’ brother, Javier.
