World Heritage Student Exchange Programs has qualified Nina Willis of Valley Spring as a host family for Till Oliver, a student from Germany. Oliver will be attending Llano High School for the upcoming semester.

Till Oliver has met all of the academic and character qualifications necessary to be accepted as an exchange student by World Heritage and the Willis Family welcomed him upon his arrival in August.

He is a 16 year old 10th grader from Neustadt, Germany (near Berlin). He will be living with Nina and her son Wade. According to Willis, Till is a lifetime horseman. He rides show jumpers and also competes in Germany in track and swimming.

World Heritage, a highly respected, non-profit, public-benefit organization, is dedicated to fostering cultural enrichment and intercultural understanding through youth exchange programs. World Heritage provides students from Europe, Asia and the Americas the opportunity to spend an exchange experience in the U.S.A.
