Today members of the Holmen Area Rotary Club went to the La Crosse Airport to meet this year's inbound foreign exchange student, Hyun Suk KIM (AKA Alfred). Alfred is from South Korea and is taking part in the Rotary International Youth Exchange program. Rotary Youth Exchange builds peace one young person at a time.
Students learn a new language, discover another culture, and truly become global citizens. Exchanges for students ages 15-19 are sponsored by Rotary clubs in more than 100 countries. Alfred will be living with various host families while going to Holmen High School for the year.
Alfred looked tired and hungry after his long journey but was all smiles. Your support means a lot to Alfred as well as his host family. Thanks to all that came to give him a very big "Wisconsin/Holmen Rotary welcome". Welcome to Holmen Alfred!
BTW - Starting in September, HARC will be looking for a local student that would be interested in an outgoing exchange possibility for the '23-'24 school year.
