Evanston Township High School senior Michael Trotter Alexander has been selected to participate in the second annual Global Classmates Summit in Washington, D.C. for 10 days this summer. Alexander will join a cohort of 12 high school students (six American students studying Japanese and six Japanese students studying English) to participate in various activities and cultivate cultural awareness between the two groups.

 The Summit aims to empower students from both countries to grow as leaders to build a positive future for Japan-U.S. relations and the broader international community.

 This is the second year that the ETHS Japanese program has been selected to participate in the Global Classmates Summit.
