Lucas Salaberry, who recently completed his sophomore year at Lamar High School, will spend time this summer preparing for his upcoming school year – in Germany. Lucas received a scholarship to continue his high school education at United World College Robert Bosch in Freiburg, Germany. He was among 60 U.S. students selected for the merit-based Davis Scholarships. UWC is an international high school for 16 to 19 year olds with 18 campuses worldwide whose mission is to unite cultures through education and working to create a more peaceful world. UWC offers the international baccalaureate, a two-year pre-university program that is widely recognized. Lucas says he was drawn to UWC because its mission aligns with his passions and goals. His mother graduated in ’85, coming from Uruguay, and although he’s never visited the campus in Germany, he’s very excited. Proud parents are Rafael Salaberry and Maria J. Tort.
