GRSP Update

We are sad to report that this year’s GRSP recipient Emma Harte decided to return to her homeland of Scotland this semester.  This does, however, free up one-half of our financial commitment allowing us to move forward with securing a student for the 2012-2013 school term.

Our first choice for the new term is a young man from Turkey.  We have just received word that he has accepted our scholarship offer to attend Valdosta State University.  Now he must make application to attend VSU and apply for his student VISA.  Once he has completed these measures we will be able to establish personal contact.  We are very excited about the coming year and hope to establish lifelong friendships.

We will be making several pleas over the next few months asking for volunteers and additional hosts to help make his year in Valdosta a profitable and memorable year for him as well as the members of our club.  We look forward to showcasing all that the Valdosta community and South Georgia has to offer.  For more on the Georgia Rotary Student Program visit:  www.GRSP.org.
