A Capital High School student set off for an overseas adventure Thursday.
Nathan Allen is in the 11th grade and is heading to Germany, where he will be an exchange student.
Allen will take part in Youth For Understanding USA, an international high school program, and will stay with a host family during his visit overseas.
He said he could not be more excited.
"(It’s) the most exciting and amazing thing I've ever done in my life,” Allen said. “I get to represent my school, my state and my country across the globe in Germany and let them know about the culture and everything we do here."
Allen is the first international exchange student from Capital High.
His flight departed at about 4 p.m. Thursday.
