Our students have arrived! This school year, D7770 has 9 clubs who are hosting. A huge thank you to the Rotary clubs who are changing these students lives: Beaufort, Charleston Breakfast, Hampton County, Hilton Head Island, Lexington, Lowcountry, Mt. Pleasant, North Charleston Breakfast, St. Andrews-Charleston, and Summerville. D7770 hosted an Inbound Training Weekend in Charleston for all of our new foreign students, including 2 students from D7750. This year, South Carolina Rotary districts have accepted 12 students. They come from all over the world: Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia, France, Taiwan, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Germany, Peru, & Denmark.We have 12 wonderful students with very impressive English skills. Friday evening, we were hosted by Wild Blue Ropes, a new & adventurous ropes course on James Island, www.wildblueropes.com. The students partnered up and were able to become acquainted with each other while having a blast. A big thank you to Wild Blue Ropes! The remainder of the weekend was spent going over Rotary protocol and exploring Charleston by boat. The students had an incredible time, as did the Rotarians who were so lucky to spend this time with such great kids and be part of such a truly inspiring program.
