This Week's Speaker
Maro Innocent-Otolo, Our 2021-22 GRSP Student

Learn more today about Oghenemaro Innocent-Otolo - better known to us as Maro - who joined us from Nigeria last August through the Georgia Rotary Student Program (GRSP). She will introduce us to Nigeria, her family and culture in Friday's presentation, and tell us more about herself. You can join us in person at LeMeridien or via Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86202979419 

Maro is studying at Oglethorpe University - and comes to us through GRSP's new Direct College Select Program. That means we worked with Oglethorpe to identify an incoming freshman for a GRSP scholarship (rather than selecting from the applicants that apply directly to GRSP). Dunwoody piloted this program for GRSP in 2019-20 when we selected Yemariam. 
 
Host dad Ardy Bastien will be introducing Maro this Friday. He said Maro has become part of the family. She's joined several of our meetings and service activities - and is pictured here with part of the group that prepared books for Dresden and Kingsley students in December.

We originally scheduled Maro to speak as our kick-off for our GRSP Leadership Weekend. As reported last week, that has been rescheduled for the first weekend in March, as a caution because of the current COVID surge. If you'd like to get involved in that weekend, please contact Louise and Ron Barden for more information.
