   Twenty-seven years ago Angie Cluppert went to France with some elementary classmates. Monday evening, she was in the Ripon High School commons telling visitors how vital and fun international exchanges are for students, host parents and the community.

   The French Adventure was just one of six international exchange programs hosted by the Ripon Area School District.

   At the dinner, staffed by local Kiwanians and Rotarians, visitors also got to learn about RHS and Ripon College exchange students, a music trip to China, International Science Camp, an RHS trip to German and a future trip to Costa Rica.
