Host Family Appreciation Contest Winner Announcement | Cambridge Network
May 10, 2017

To show appreciation for all the hard working and incredibly caring host families, Cambridge Network held a Host Family Appreciation Contest. We asked our Support Services Coordinators and international students to nominate the host families that they believe go above and beyond in their role as a host to international students.

We received some incredible stories from both our staff and students that set the bar high for future host families. The Host Appreciation Contest featured three categories for student nominations, and three categories for Support Services Coordinators.
