Welcome Maria Carbonell! Maria is our GA Rotary Student Program (GRSP) student from Colombia. Will and Machelle Watt are her host parents this school year.
Maria provide the club with an enjoyable presentation on her home country of Columbia, family, friends and future aspirations.
THANK YOU to Debbie Goodman for hosting the welcome reception at her home on Thursday. It was a wonderful opportunity to get to know our host student.
A great evening on Saturday with the Georgia Rotary Student Program young people at our Fall Conclave at GA Southern. The students, from 20 countries, put on a cabaret for the host families and GRSP supporters. Our student, Maria Carbonell, did a wonderful dance from her native Colombia. #grsp @ Georgia Southern University Performing Arts Center.
The Georgia Rotary Student Program (GRSP) was founded by our own Thomasville Rotarian, Past District Governor (PDG) William A. Watt, resulting in the Rotary Club of Thomasville forever being recognized as the Home Club of GRSP. This coming spring, the GRSP program will be 74 years old. Over these years, our Club has sponsored 90 of the 3,791 GRSP students.
Our Club’s GRSP goal for 2019-2020 is $25,500, of which $10,973.50 has been given as of September 30, 2019, leaving us a balance to raise by April 16, 2020, of $14,526.50. As in past years, it will take all members working together to reach our goal in support of this exceptional program, as GRSP strives to support World Peace.
