John and Natalie Ford shared with the Poteau Rotary Club during the local civic organization’s weekly meeting Wednesday afternoon at Eastern Oklahoma Medical Center the joys of the opportunity they had when they got to host a foreign-exchange student during the 2017-18 school year.

“Our experience as foreign-exchange student host parents was wonderful,” said Natalie Ford, who is the Wister cross-country and track coach. “It’s definitely one of our top five experiences of our lives.”
