“Your connection to Rotary doesn’t end after your program; it’s just the beginning. You are instantly plugged into a global network of influencers, community and business leaders, people who have immense resources to help you create and foster change throughout your career. So many doors have been opened to me because I’m affiliated with Rotary.”
— Andy Stoll, past Rotary Scholar
