Ten Rotary exchange students from countries around the world who were placed at locations throughout Florida will be spending the weekend in Grand Bahama as part of the exchange experience.

The group arrived at the Grand Bahama International Airport shortly after 1 p.m. yesterday and were met by a group of Rotarians, including president of the Rotary Club of Lucaya Minerva Kemp. Kemp explained that the students are nearing the end of their exchange year and were given the opportunity to visit Grand Bahama since it is a part of the Rotary District 6990, which includes Florida and The Bahamas.

"Today we have all of the exchange students from within the district coming to Freeport for the weekend. They end their trip here because they all go back home in June and they wanted to let all the students in the district get together," she said.
