International ambassador: Stanley Beal makes friends around the world through exchange program

Published 07/09/2011, Worthington Daily Globe

ROUND LAKE — Stanley Beal has traveled widely through the continental United States, his only trip outside North America a weekend spent in the Bahamas.

That’s why I’m here. But I’m seven-eighths German.”
