It’s not easy to pack up and move thousands of miles from home, but some Quad Cities residents made it a little easier for one teen from Brazil.

With welcome signs in hand, a small group gathered at the Quad City International Airport to welcome Anthony on Tuesday evening, August 6, 2013.

Anthony is in the U.S. courtesy of the Moline Rotary Club.  He will live with a local family while he attends Moline High School.

Rotary Clubs sponsor about 8,000 exchange students from 80 different countries every year.
