Our Foreign Exchange Student -- Nazek Fahmy Habib

It's been far too long (50+ years) since we've heard much from our class exchange student, Nazek Fahmy, but Mary Parsons Caisley, her Moline host, recently met up with her in Alexandria, Egypt. It looks like a joyous reunion.  And we've been given the okay to post these pictures of them now.  Hopefully we can get a little more information later.
