Legislator Abrahams Congratulates People to People Ambassador Charles Byam

Nassau County Legislator Kevan Abrahams (D-Hempstead) congratulated Charles Byam, the first student from Roosevelt to participate in the People to People Ambassador Program, at a recent session of the Nassau County Legislature. Legislator Abrahams presented him with a county citation


"I find this young man truly amazing,” Legislator Abrahams said. “At a very young age he has been chosen to participate in a very worthwhile program. As an ambassador in the People to People Ambassador Program he’ll learn a great deal, things he couldn’t learn in the classroom. He is the first student from Roosevelt to be chosen for this program and I am very proud of him.”


The People to People Ambassador Program was founded in 1956 to, as Dwight D. Eisenhower said, "promote peace through understanding." Students travel in delegations of 30-40 ambassadors led by experienced local educators. Student Ambassadors experience hands-on learning opportunities and immerse themselves in the arts, sports and family life of cultures around the world.
