From West Seattle Rotary: Students honored; free travel offer

Two items from the Rotary Club of West Seattle – first, honors for the smiling trio you see above. Irene Stewart explains, “Every month the Rotary Club of West Seattle honors outstanding seniors from West Seattle high schools. The October students of the month are (from left) Kelsey Shaw, Seattle Lutheran High School; Kaosio Saeteurn, West Seattle High School; and Dallas Rupnick, Chief Sealth High School.”

Also from the West Seattle Rotary, an invitation to NON-Rotarians:

Here’s an incredible opportunity for a young professional! Local Rotary clubs are looking for young business people from King County who would like to travel to Bolivia next spring. And the best part – Rotary picks up the tab!

Rotary group study exchanges develop professional and leadership skills and prepare participants to address global needs within their own communities. The month-long program provides an opportunity to travel to Bolivia, engage in professional discussions, and tour facilities that they would never see as a tourist.

All costs are covered by Rotary. Applicants must be age 25 to 40 and employed. Only non-Rotarians need apply — even Rotary family members are not eligible to participate. Applications are due on or before October 19, 2009. For more information, go to or contact the Rotary District 5030 GSE Committee Chair, Bob Kaercher, at 425-277-3114 or

That deadline may be a bit flexible, according to WS Rotary’s Steve Fuller, but the sooner the better.

    Wow! I hadn’t heard of that trip before. I read some of the journals of a past participant and it sounds like an incredible experience.
