Host family for a water polo player?

Got this note from Tammy who is looking for a place for a high school water polo player from Serbia to stay. Please email Tammy if interested and feel free to share with other community members who may be interested.

See you Thursday at CSU at 6:30 p.m.


My name is Tammy Bertrand and I am the local coordinator for PAX-Program of Academic Exchange. We are a non profit organization that brings international exchange students from over 40 countries to study in the US.

I cover the west side of Cleveland and currently am looking for a host family for a young water polo player who would be interested in hosting a student for the school year...I was hoping you could get his information out to your players and fans to see if anyone would be interested in hosting him for the upcoming school year. All a family needs to do to host a student is have a place for them to
sleep and study. The students have complete health coverage, their own spending
money and a desire to be part of our culture.

Anything you can do to get this information out the right people would be greatly appreciated! Feel free to contact me should you have any questions or take a look at the website - it is very informative.

This teen is a water polo superstar. He’s garnered 13 medals for the sport at both city and national competitions! When he’s not in the water, he likes to be on the basketball court or with his friends listening to live music. Because Dragan lives in the center of New Belgrade, he is used to city life that is very accessible. However, he also appreciates the countryside. His family frequently goes to the country on the weekends to visit centuries old churches and monasteries. They also like to travel and have gone to many of the countries in that region.
