Heidari hdshotUniversity of South Carolina senior Leila Heidari has been named a Rotary Global Grant Scholar to obtain her Masters in Global Health at Oxford University in Oxford, UK during the 2014-2015 academic year. Heidari is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Five Points in Columbia, South Carolina.  Five Points Rotarian Louis Dessau, who led the nominating process for the club, says, “We have many talented students in the Columbia area who can represent Rotary throughout the world.  Leila Heidari is exceptional and will be reporting back to us during her year in the UK.  Rotarians everywhere should feel pride in what they accomplish by donating to the Rotary Foundation, which enables students like Leila to spend a year abroad and learn how people from different cultures can do business with one another and live together peaceably.”   President Andrew says, “One of my goals in this year is to be involved in the community, to let people know what Rotary is and what Rotary does for young people to help them succeed.  We’ll follow Leila through her year as a Rotary scholar and after she returns from Oxford.  Thanks to District 7770 for making this possible.”
