Stettler Rotary Club’s exchange student headed to France

Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus student, Jeri-Anne Georget expressed her gratitude to the Stettler Rotary Club members at their weekly meeting on Monday, March 27.

Georget is the club’s exchange student headed to France because of her family history and to learn French.

“My great great grandfather and his three uncles migrated to Canada from the area of Domremy, France and settled in northern Saskatchewan near Prince Albert, creating Domremy Saskatchewan,” Georget said. “This made France more appealing to me and I’m honoured to have been selected to go to France for my exchange year.”

Georget found out this past weekend which Rotary District she would be living in and is excited for her new adventures ahead.

“I will be living in Brittany or Bretagne-Mayenne, as they say in French, located in the north-west of France near the Atlantic Ocean, about two hours from Paris,” Georget added. “I feel like I have taken on an amazing responsibility and opportunity of a lifetime. Being accepted as a Rotary Exchange Student means that I will be an ambassador of Stettler and Canada, learning a new language and being immersed into a new culture, and I feel like I’ve gained a worldwide family in Rotary.”

Georget said she was looking forward to everything “the ups and all the downs.”

“I’m thrilled that I’ll be able to experience a new culture, meet new friends and expand my Rotary family,” Georget stated. “I’m also looking forward to the Rotary Exchange Student trip around Europe called the Euro Tour and looking forward to discovering about myself, learning about my strengths and weaknesses and growing throughout the year.”

Expressing her gratitude to Rotary, Georget added that she would like to thank all of Rotary for making this exchange a possibility for students around the world.

“I truly appreciate and thank the Stettler Rotary Club for giving me this platform to grow and making me a part of their family,” Georget said.
