November 10, 2017 - Rotary District 6920, located in southeast Georgia, is sending a Group Study Exchange (GSE) team to Hyderabad, India in early 2018.

John Neely, Past District Governor and Savannah East Rotary Club member, has been designated as the group’s team leader. “I’m thrilled to lead this outstanding group of individuals to India come January,” said Neely. “Each one of us is excited to partake in Rotary’s motto of ‘Service Above Self.’”

During the month-long trip, team members will stay in Rotarians' homes, attend Rotary Club meetings, have vocational days, visit Rotary-sponsored humanitarian projects and tour cultural sites. Members will also participate in Polio National Immunization Day, as the eradication of polio is one of Rotary’s largest missions.

Neely will be joined by four of the following team members that are undergoing training for the trip:

Brigitte Shanken, Assistant Governor and Hinesville Rotary Club member.

Joey Darley, member of the Jesup Rotary Club.

Jasmine Head, of Savannah.

Cari Phelps, Metro Savannah Rotary Club member.

Lisa Grove, member of the Savannah Rotary Club.

Jose Dacruz, member of the Savannah East Rotary Club.

The remaining two members will be designated as alternates.

A team from District 3150 in India will travel through our District 6920 in April and attend the District Conference in Jekyll Island. Clubs wanting the India team to visit their communities should contact GSE Co-Chairs Justin Godchaux or Andy Lohn.

To apply for the GSE, individuals’ applications were solicited, and applicants were interviewed by Neely and the GSE Committee. It is anticipated that a team will travel again next year to Sri Lanka.
