GUEST SPEAKER: Kari Williams – Rotary Peace Scholar Award Winner

Our club proudly welcomed Kari Williams this past April. Kari is the District “Rotary Peace Scholar,” and she earned a master’s degree in Peace and Conflict Resolution from UCF. This summer, Kari will be heading to the University of Bradford in the U.K., where she will study at the Rotary Peace Center. Kari spoke about the need for programs around the world, like the Rotary Peace Center scholarship, and how their work can translate into prevention and resolution of conflicts. In past years, our club has looked to sponsor students applying for the Peace Scholar program, most recently with Ms. Kyle Koob in 2006.
