Rotary sponsors Truckee, international students

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Rotary Youth Exchange Program is going strong, with incoming and outgoing students.

Inbound students are Lorena Demichelli Garcia, who was hosted by the Truckee Sunrise Rotary. She returned to Brazil on June 20 after being here for 10 months.

Outbound student Colten Roderigue is a recent graduate of Truckee High School and will travel abroad to Wavre Belgium in August. He will live and study there for the next year, and is also being sponsored by local Rotary clubs. He is very appreciative of all the local support he has gotten from the clubs and his teachers who have helped him through this process. He is looking forward to learning his new language (French) and all that Europe has to offer.

Inbound student Raphael Antz is from France. He is also sponsored by the local Rotary clubs.
