We’re having fun showing Nishka around our beautiful state.
She’s our inbound exchange student from India.
As an exchange student, Nishka is attending high school in the Salem area, and learning lot about the differences between cultures. Last Friday, she experienced her first homecoming dance!

One of the biggest joys our members have is the ability to support Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE).
Emani is the first student from District 5100 to do a Rotary Youth Exchange program in Slovakia. She arrived just last week.
Instead of attending South Salem High School, Emani will spend her junior year immersed in the culture of this Eastern European nation.
