Extraordinary Outbound Student
Date: Jul 04, 2004
Ben McConnell is on his way to Brazil as a Rotary Youth Exchange Student. He leaves July 26th. Ben will be gone for one full year and will be attending school,learning a new language and culture.
What makes this exchange so unique is that Ben is blind. He is one of very few, if any, blind students to become a Rotary Youth Exchange Student.
Ben will be a great Ambassador for Canada and for Rotary.
Good Luck Ben, and have a great exchange!

The Rotary Club of Spruce Grove is Ben's sponsoring club. They will also host Mel, a young, partially blind,female exchange student from Brazil. Thanks to the Rotary Club of Spruce Grove and to Mike Birdsell for the many hours devoted towards making these two exchanges possible.

Ben McConnell Exchange - He's Off!
Date: Aug 25, 2004
5:45 am Monday morning (August 23) Ben passed through security on the first steps of his 28 hour journey to Recife, Brazil. Ben was calm as usual, but the group on hand to wish him "Bon Voyage" was just a little nervous.

In this picture with Ben is Mel Dias, our inbound student from Brazil, who arrived in time to meet Ben.

Thanks to the Rotary Club of Spruce Grove, Mike Birdsell, Janice and Jessica Scalzo for making this exchange work. It took a lot of extra planning, but Ben is off for Brazil.
