Each year, Rotary awards up to 100 fully funded fellowships for dedicated leaders from around the world to study at one of our peace centers.
On Tuesday April 9th, our very own GRSP student Princess Adobe was awarded the Rotary Foundation Peace Award at the Midtown Atlanta Rotary Club.
On hand for the event was Jim Squire, District 6900 Governor Elect, and Roswell Rotary Club President Becky Stone as well as over 30 members of the Midtown Atlanta Rotary Club.
The Peace Fellowship is earned through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centers program develops the fellows into experienced and effective catalysts for peace. The fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.
We are all very pleased with the work that Miss Adobe has done to prove her dedication to the Rotary Clubs, the Rotary Foundation and to her fellow citizens of the world.
