The Rotary Club of Colorado Springs will be actively involved with Rotary Youth Exchange in 2016-2017 with both an outbound and inbound student.
Our outbound student is Annie Nikolaus who attends the Discovery Canyon Campus High School in District 20. Annie will be leaving this summer for her exchange year in Germany in the town of Flensburg, about as far north in Germany as one may travel before entering Denmark. Annie's brother Kevin was also an Rotary Youth Exchange student in Germany in 2009-10, also sponsored by our club. Annie's parents, Larry & Kathy, will be the first host family for our inbound student. Annie and her parents will join us at a July meeting before she heads to Germany.
Our inbound student is Christopher Grundner from Micheldorf, Austria, about 150 miles west of Vienna. Christopher will attend Discovery Canyon Campus High School and should arrive in Colorado about August 5th. Our club's Larry & Chris Keefe will be one of three host families for Christopher. You'll have the opportunity to meet Christopher at our meeting on August 12th.
