A Farewell to Erin
On October 22nd we said our goodbyes to Erin Hartman, the international post-grad student that several of our members have been "looking after" during her past year in York.
Erin hails from New Jersey, USA and is affiliated with the Rotary Club of Medford-Vincentown NJ. She was studying at the University of York under a Marshall Scholarship, doing a Masters in International and Human Rights.
Her inititation into York last September took the form of 2 weeks quarantining at the Roomzz Hotel, due to the pandemic. But Eileen, Rebecca, Jan and others soon made her feel welcome in our city, and Erin is now going to stay a further two years study in the UK, and is moving to London shortly. We wish her every success - it has been a pleasure to get to know her, albeit briefly!
The Rotary Club of Medford-Vincetown, who provided a further scholarship to Erin, made a video message of greeting to us at York Rotary;
in return we have put together our own "greetings" video - also featuring Erin - which can be viewed below.........
