News Around The District
DG Jerry Chapman's June Message
As I write my final message to you, I am preparing to depart for the Rotary International Convention in Hamburg. Thirty-eight of our district Rotarians are registered. I am excited to have an opportunity to share time and fellowship with close to 40,000 Rotarians from around the world. Regardless of different languages and cultures, Rotarians share a common desire to change lives. Attendance at an international convention, more than anything else for me, gives me an appreciation of the reach and possibilities of Rotary. I leave refreshed and reinforced that together we can give others hope that there can be a better day tomorrow despite all the tragedy we read about in the media. There are a lot of caring people in the world. Lives are changed one person at a time.

2018-19 Global Grant Scholar - Sarah Fischer
Sarah Fischer, The Rotary Club of Austin's 2018-19 Global Grant Scholar, is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, where she earned a BA in International Relations and a BJ in Journalism, both with High Honors.  She will pursue a Master's of Science in Developmental Studies at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where her Rotary Area of Focus will be Economic and Community Development.
Her program will examine the “process involved in overcoming poverty and creating healthy, wealthy and sustainable societies.”  She will be provided the opportunity to investigate the intersection of economic development, gender, and social innovation, and how to overcome the feminization of poverty across the Global South, with the regional interest in French speaking Africa.
