Hammond students Jennifer Campbell, Jan Cunningham, Courtney Daniels, Robin Palmatier, Alison Pflugrad, Jenni Emelio and Erin Murray had an interesting summer.
They were among the 34 Howard County students who participated in the Columbia Association's Sister City Program. They spent part of the summer in Cergy Pontoise, France, and part in Tres Cantos, Spain.
The well-traveled students then played host to their French counterparts in Howard County.
