Former exchange student presents program on travels

Julia and Morne present their travel program at Boone Central Middle School.
Julie Peters, a foreign exchange student who attended school at Boone Central in 2009-2010, is recently taking residence in the home of Mark and Chris Grundmayer of Raeville with her fiance, Morne Laubscher.
Julia grew up in Germany, and Morne is from South Africa.
Julia and Morne recently spent the day at Boone Central in Mrs. Grundmayer’s classroom sharing stories of their journey around the world.
In 2019, Julia and Morne sold all their possessions, quit their jobs in Germany, and started the process of exploring by traveling around the world.
They have been to several countries, and the U.S., Mexico and South America are next on their list.
