Foreign exchange students adapting to small-town life in Sauk Valley
STERLING – Theerapat Thirawat, a 17-year-old foreign exchange student at Newman Central Catholic High School, had never ridden a horse before coming to the Sauk Valley.
He went from living in Bangkok, with a metropolitan population of about 8.2 million, to a farm in Amboy.
He feeds animals every day at 6 p.m., obeying his host family’s wishes, he said. His farm experience is quite different from his life in Thailand, where he followed a strict schedule of study and military training.
