Angela Williamson
Why I am a Rotarian?

"When I was asked to join the Rotary Club of Thomasville by my former boss, I was thrilled to have the opportunity and readily agreed. During my first visit to the club, I was welcomed and greeted with open arms. Rotary has opened the door to many great friendships and allowed me to give back to Thomasville in so many ways. I am honored to be a part and thankful for the group of Rotarians I serve with. As my husband puts it, I "rotate a lot," but service to others makes me happy. "

This Week's Program
Georgia Rotary Student Program - Will Watt & Debbie Goodman

Since 1946, Rotarians in Georgia, USA, have promoted world peace through understanding by offering scholarships to international students for one year of study in Georgia colleges and universities. Georgia Rotary Clubs sponsor students recommended by a Rotary Club in their home country.

The students become adopted members of a Georgia “host family,” living on-campus at the school they attend. This is a scholarship program, not an exchange!

Each year, about 60 students from all over the world make friends in the United States and other nations and learn about differing cultures and life styles. Georgia Rotarians believe “Peace is Possible” and through GRSP promote international goodwill through friendship and understanding.

GRSP Mission Statement

Promote peace through understanding.
Encourage the exchange of cultural and social experiences.
Advance the ideals of Rotary.
Create opportunities for friendship.
Envision a world where peace is a reality
