Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar Arrives

21/09/2007

 

Friday the 21st September saw the arrival of the clubs third Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar.

We will be hosting Jonathan Barry this year. Jonathan comes from Tennessee and will be studying Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (University of London) whilst he is with us.

One of the unique features of the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship program is that in addition to providing financial support to the scholars, Rotary also appoints a "Host Counsellor" who is available to support the scholar while they are away from home. Jonathan's host counsellor is Past President Alan O'Neill.

Below is a picture of Jonathan who had just checked in to his halls of residence, what you cannot see is the mountain of luggage that Jonathan brought with him (3 large crates and 3 suitcases), and we thought Americans travelled light!
