Exchange student returns to AHS

Bernardo Braga Da Cruz recently returned to Athens High School where he spent the 2001-2002 school year as an exchange student from Portugal. Cruz was a member of the AHS soccer team, which in 2002 was co-district champion and bi-district champion. He returned to Athens in October with his wife, Joana, to attend the wedding reception of his host-family brother, Austin Cates. The two played soccer together and — when Cruz’s original host family announced they were moving from Athens — the Cates family happily took Cruz in. (Toni Garrard Clay/AISD)
