Rotary District 5790 Selects Outstanding Young Professionals to Participate in Group Study Exchange Program to New Zealand
FORT WORTH, Texas (March 11, 2011) – Rotary District 5790, representing 65 Rotary Districts throughout North Central Texas, has selected four young professionals to experience the way of life, customs and vocational practices of New Zealand through Rotary International’s prominent Group Study Exchange Program (GSE).
“The purpose of the exchange is to promote international understanding and foster goodwill,” explains Paul Geisel, Chair of the GSE Committee for District 5790. “While abroad, team members will share information about their home country through vocational experiences and presentations for Rotary Clubs and various organizations and businesses in Auckland. The group will also stay in host families’ homes, giving them the opportunity to form close and often lifelong friendships.” A team from the partnering Rotary District 9920 in New Zealand will have similar experiences in North Texas to learn how their professions are carried out in the United States.
