The New Ulm Hans Joohs Sister Cities Commission awarded the Special Recognition award to Bob Webb Monday night. Webb called it a great honor. The commission brings students from Germany over to America and put them into internships, put them with host families to experience life over here without having to put them up in a hotel situation. The commission also sends students from here over to Germany for the same experiences. Webb says a benefit of being ahost family is that you really get a friend for life. Webb says one of the things he enjoys about being a part of the Sister Cities Commission is meeting the kids and watching their experiences when they come here.
