A Life-Altering Experience
by Juan Lira & Ellison Crider
Can one person’s dream make a profound difference in the lives of others? In 2014-2015, Art Zeitler (District 5930 Governor) shared with the District Scholarship Committee (DSC) a dream he had. College students from District 5930 who had completed at least 2 years of college work and were working towards a degree in a field connected to one of the Rotary Foundation’s Areas of Focus could apply for a scholarship. The scholarship would allow them to spend two weeks in Costa Rica (a stable and democratic country) as members of an interdisciplinary medical brigade that would treat individuals in need. The Committee agreed this experience would be invaluable. Read the full story in the newsletter, page 10.
