For 2022-2023 we have an exciting level of RYE activity.  Two Long-term Outbound students Manny Nunez (S. Korea) and Samantha Kramer (Brazil) and a Short-term student, Serena Guo, who is going to Belgium on a direct exchange.

Our Outbound Exchange student Samantha (Sammy) Kramer attended with her father, Keith Kramer (photo).  She will leave in July for Brazil to be there on time to start school.  She wore her RYE jacket with a collection of pins already evident, so it’s obvious she will have a fabulous time.  She has communicated with her host family and is excited about going.   Sam’s grandfather is a Rotarian from Cincinnati and was the pin donor to her early start.

The Kramers, who live in Stow, are going to host Yara while Sammy is in Brazil. Yara has already made out her schedule with help from Sam’s mom, Tonya Kramer, and hopes to play volleyball for SMFHS.  Liv Pilon will serve as Counselor to our Inbound student Yara Martin Salas. 

July 12 our short-term exchange student Serena Guo will join Akron Rotarians for lunch with her exchange sister from Belgium and Serena’s mother.  

The RYE Committee will meet next week, June 28, to plan activities for our Inbound student following the regular meeting at Bounce.   If you are a Rotarian who is interested in supporting young people in an international adventure, please join us.
