    Substituting is always the best way to get into a system.
    There is also the systems nearby in KY and the Ft Campbell
    base school. If you need to volunteer, the Miss Tennky Area
    AFS Leadership Team is always looking for registered
    volunteers and host families currently for the fall. We need
    families for 4 students: 1 Thai female and 3 males from China,
    Chile and Paraguay. Call Jenny Myers at 615-385-9644 or e-mail
    her at AFShosting@misstennky today if you or you know of a
    family who would like to open their hearts and home to an AFS
    high school foreign exchange student for the next school year.
    They are fully insured medically and bring their own spending
    money. They need placements now in order to arrive in time for
    school to begin.Dr. Barbara Y. Wills
