GRSP Farewell
Farewell to Mhairi Gormley

The Rotary Club of Brookhaven bids a fond farewell to Mhairi Gormley, our 2018-19 GRSP student. It was a delight to be able to partner with the Rotary Clubs of North Atlanta and Decatur to host Mhairi this year. Mhairi embodied the best of the program's values and goals, sowing goodwill and bringing a bright smile and a willing heart to social and service events throughout the year.

Safe travels back to Scotland, Mhairi, and know that you have many friends in Atlanta and around the world, thanks to the GRSP program.
