Mr. Benjamin Euler serves as Director of WAnet, the Summer English Institute (SEI), and the HomeStay Boarding Symposium. He has a long history of involvement with WAnet founding school Wheaton Academy in West Chicago, Illinois, including attending there as a student, and is a graduate of Grace College (B.S., Business Administration) in Winona Lake, Indiana. Benjamin manages relationships with WAnet schools nationwide and recruiting partners worldwide, directs the annual HomeStay Boarding Symposium, and oversees the staff, marketing, student recruitment, development, and day-to-day operations of WAnet and the Summer English Institute. A Chicagoland native, Benjamin now lives and works from Southern California where SEI is held each summer.
Benjamin worked closely with WAnet Founder Jon Keith in the first five years of WAnet to develop the student placement service and the Summer English Institute as the premier summer English, cultural acclimation, and travel experience for international students in America that it is today. He seeks to continue the vision Mr. Keith exemplified for the personal care and development of each international student part of a WAnet program or school. Benjamin has worked for WAnet since its founding in 2011 and enjoys spending time with his wife Hannah (who also works at SEI each summer), trail running, biking, the California sunshine, traveling, and listening to the powerhouse vocals and tight harmony of southern gospel music.
