GAPP Program Honored by State Department

Sangamon Valley High School was recognized with an honor from the United States State Department for support of the 2016 German American Partnership Program (GAPP), ongoing commitment to citizen diplomacy, and fostering international understanding through exchange programs.  The GAPP program is orchestrated by Mr. Joe Scanavino, foreign language teacher at Sangamon Valley High School.  Along with the Spanish American Partnership Program (SAPP), the GAPP program is a special opportunity offered to Sangamon Valley High School students across grade levels and provides them with the chance to meet and learn from German and Spanish students at home and abroad.  Mr. Scanavino works tirelessly to coordinate, organize and facilitate these partnerships each year and SVHS is lucky to have him!
