Crestview High School's Luna joins People to People program

Published: Friday, June 7, 2013 at 11:20 AM.

June 1, he met the organization's Northwest Florida representative in Pensacola in the first of 12 monthly orientation and instructional meetings.

"He is very excited. He is ready to go," his mother, Becci Luna, said. "We were excited when it became his turn."

Louis' older siblings, Matthew and Allison, were People to People ambassadors to Europe and Australia, respectively.

Louis said his trip will be a sort of homecoming. When he was an infant, his dad, Louis Luna Jr., was stationed in Europe with the U.S. Army.

"I was so young I don't remember any of it, so I hope I can revive some hidden memories when I go," Louis said.

Activities and interests

In Europe, Louis will attend a West End musical, meet with a member of Parliament, meet World War II veterans, explore Versailles Palace, visit Flanders Field, climb Cologne cathedral, stay with a German family, work a community service project in a German village, and participate in a scavenger hunt in Zurich.
