Coweta Fayette Rotary Club Welcomes attorney Lynn Clark and 4 GRSP Students

Lynn Clark visited the Coweta Fayette Rotary Club and introduced four GRSP Students. Since 1946, Rotarians in Georgia 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. 

These students become adopted members of a Georgia “host family,” but live on campus at the school they attend. Georgia Rotarians believe “Peace is Possible” and through GRSP promote international goodwill through the bonds of friendship and understanding.  Pictured in the front row is Catherine Mazhandu from Zimbabwe.
