Martello Rotary Welcomes Global Rotary Scholar

President Rodney Reed and Marion Trew welcome Stacy our Rotary Scholar as she points to her distant homeland in Taiwan


Shih Tang – Global Scholar

 

On her second day in the UK, Global Scholar Shih Tang (aka Stacy) uses the Martello Rotary topograph on the Seaford seafront to show the way to her home in Taiwan, approximately 6,090 miles away.  Stacy. a Global Scholar sponsored by The Rotary Foundation. is hosted by Martello Rotary Seaford members Marion Trew and Janice Vince.  Stacy will spend a year undertaking postgraduate studies for a ‘Master of Arts in Development Studies’ at the University of Sussex in Brighton.

 

The topograph, newly refurbished by the Seaford Town Council, is a legacy of Martello Rotary Past President 2007/8 Claire Ivory.  Rotary International President Mark Maloney’s theme for 2019/20 is “Rotary Connects the World” and Stacy embodies that by linking Seaford with Taiwan.  A second example of this theme in practice will take place in April 2020 when 13 members from Martello Rotary Seaford go to visit our international charity partner ‘Community Training Assistance and Support’ (CTAS) schools and water projects in Nepal. This will include a visit to a Claire Ivory memorial placed on the first CTAS water tank and school sanitation project, this one in the mountain village of Pipaldali.
