Have you ever done something just
because some of your relatives did it? Well,
that's what Nora Mata did and she ended
up in Alton.
Nora is originally from Mexico City,
Mexico. Her cousin went on a student
exchange from Mexico City to Kansas, so
Nora followed suit and wrote tothe Inter-
national Fellowship lnc. to go on an
exchange. She was chosen to come to
Alton. Another reason for going on the
exchange was to learn English.
She has classes consisting of Student
Senate, art, typing, P.E. and Spanish.
Nora enjoys school, in fact she said, 'l like
Alton High more than anything in the
United States." She could think ofnothing
that she didn't like about America or Alton
High, but the fact that she only speaks
Spanish is a bit of a hindrance.
Nora arrived in Alton on Sept. 2 from
Mexico. She is staying with the Cletus
Keene family. Brenda Keene is a junior at
AHS.,Nora is only I5 years old, a sopho-
more by our standards. However, in
Mexico she is in her third year of secon-
When speaking of the schools in the
United States, she explained, "Some are
the same, some are different. The different
ones are bigger in America, with many
more activities." The only activities in her
school are basketball, volleyball and
soccer. Soccer is a big sport in Mexico.
Nora Christina Dominguez Mata came
to the United States to learn English and
meet new and different people. When
asked if she had accomplished this yet, she
Raewyn loves Ice cream
by Debbie Ylnger
Who's the new girl with the British
accent? She's Raewyn McNeill from
Christchurch, New Zealand.
Raewyn, I8-years-old and a senior at
AHS. came here through AFS and is
staying with Mr. and Mrs. Gail Weinrich
and their daughter Carol, ajunior at AHS.
What does Raewyn like best about
America? "My favorite is the ice-cream
parlor. l've gained seven pounds already,"
said the petite Raewyn. However, she said
she can do withdut the hot weather we had
in early September.
The entire population of New Zealand
l3,000,000l is less than the population of
St. Louis. But the population of her city,
Christchurch, f320,000J is eight times
larger than Alton.
Raewyn is taking these subjects at AHS:
Interior Design, calculus, Radio!TfV.,
American Government and psychology.
She is participating is Student Senate
Raewyn explained the difference from
her school in New Zealand to AHS. "Back
home we have more discipline and had to
wear uniforms." Aren't you glad you don't
have to wear a uniform everyday?
