We are proud of our alumni and encourage the continued engagement of our former villagers.

Over the years, numerous dignitaries and supporters have visited Concordia Language Villages including Germany’s Ambassadors Peter Hermes (1983), Gunther Van Well (1987), Jürgen Chrobog (1998), Wolfgang Ischinger (2003) and Klaus Scharioth (2007). Other ambassadors have included Finnish Ambassador Jaakko Laajava (1998), Austrian Ambassador Peter Moser (2002), Ambassador of Norway to the United States Knut Vollebæk (2003), Finnish Ambassador Jukka Valtasaari (2004) and Ambassador of the Principality of Liechtenstein Claudia Fritsche (2004).

Other countries have sent representatives from their consulates or other key Embassy officials. In the early 1990s, Minnesota Governor Arne Carlson and Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton visited the Villages, and both had children attend as villagers.
