By Robin Dudgeon...Rotary president Derek McCutcheon looks on as outbound Rotary exchange student Megan Boswell addresses the Portage Rotary Club at Tuesday's meeting. Boswell who is from Winnipeg will be spending a year in Brazil starting in August.

The Portage Rotary Club received an update on its Rotary exchange program at Tuesday's meeting, where members got a chance to meet the club's outgoing exchange student.

"The outbound student here name is Megan Boswell. Our club is sponsoring her but she is actually from Winnipeg because we didn't have a candidate from Portage," said Kathy Belton, the youth exchange counsellor for the club.

Boswell was presented with some funds from the Portage club to go towards the exchange. She also took the time to introduce herself to the club in Portuguese, which impressed the members.

Boswell will be headed to Brazil in the beginning of August, and the Portage club will also be receiving an inbound female student from Japan at that time.
