Two south Charlotte students recently joined 17 other students from across the United States to spend two weeks in and around London.
Spencer Green from South Mecklenburg High School and Mary Lynn Bain from Myers Park High School were both awarded scholarships by the British American Business Council in Charlotte to attend the British Studies Program at ACS Cobham International School. The program, in its 16th year, is part of a greater program by ACS International Schools to allow American students to explore the British culture and visit various sites of cultural and historical interest.
Both Spencer and Mary Lynn wrote an essay about a British figure they admire. Spencer wrote his essay on Queen Elizabeth I. Mary Lynn wrote her essay about Julie Andrews.
The two will return home June 30.
