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.
