Kingston High School juniors Alexander Robertson and Georgia Rose Richens described the experience:  “transformative, most amazing experience I’ve had, met new people, learned new things, learned to help my community and the world.” Robertson and Richens,  members of Kingston High School’s Rotary Interact Club, applied to the Kingston North Kitsap Rotary Club for scholarships to attend the four-day Assembly at Pacific Lutheran University in early April.  More than 100 students representing Rotary Clubs around the area attended.  They heard many speeches, including one that was particularly instructive and sobering, from a holocaust survivor telling of his experience getting out of Holland. They also participated in many team-building events and activities.  The pair presented their experience at the Club’s May 31 meeting.  Asked the one thing they learned, Richens said “it teaches you if you have a dream, go for it.”
