Rotary Youth Exchange Students 2014
ThThis year the Rotary District 6780 youth exchange is hosting students (4 boys and 3 girls) from Germany, Brazil, Chile, France, Spain, Taiwan, and Italy. These students will enhance the lives of the people they meet and interact with, and will give us all an opportunity to understand the languages, and cultures of other countries, as will they. Truely broadening the world community.
In the early afternoon of April 23, 2014 a call came in on 911 that two
kayakers were in trouble on the Calf Killer River near the old Sparta water plant. Rescue workers from the Sparta-White County Rescue Squad, the Sparta Fire Department, the Tennessee Wildlife
Resource Agency and the Sparta Police department immediately responded to the call.
Two of these rescue workers ended up in the icy river that day in a valiant effort to save the lives of two men they did not know.
The Rotary Club of Sparta recently recognized Officer David Grissom and Rescue Squad Member Zachary Cunningham for exemplifying “Service above Self” in a way that few of us will ever be called upon to do.
On behalf of the Sparta Rotary Club and our community, thank you gentlemen for all that you do.
