Georgia Rotary Student Program - Hosting GRSP Leadership Weekend
In January, 2017, our club hosted 46 International students for our annual GRSP Leadership Weekend over the MLK Weekend. This event partnered with our sister clubs and GRSP, began on Friday, January 14 with a visit to the Center for Civil and Humane Rights, followed by a Family of Rotary evening diner event at Sling Shot. Our sister clubs include the Rotary Club of Atlanta, Rotary Club of Brookhaven, Rotary Club of Buckhead, and the Rotary Club of North Atlanta. Then, on the following Saturday, the GRSP students were hosted at Oglethorpe University by Past President Larry Hart, for a lecture series entitled "Fierce Conversations." In the afternoon, we hosted a Stop Hunger Now Project event that brought together the GRSP Students, many of our club members, Rataract, Family of Rotary Student hosts and District 6900 North Atlanta Weekend Partners, volunteering to package approximately 10,000 meals that feed a family for a week internationally.
