Lake Chelan Rotary is proud to announce that Maria Bradley, a 16-year-old Junior at Chelan High School has been chosen to be our 2012 Rotary exchange student to Japan. The daughter of Ken and Rosalyn Bradley, Maria absolutely loves clubs and is involved in quite a few including; Med Club, FBLA, drama and was formerly Art Club Vice President. Maria is an excellent student and has even been in several plays put on by Chelan Valley Players. One of Maria’s favorite things to do is learn about new cultures and meet new people.
As a Rotary Youth Exchange student, Maria will spend up to a year living with host families and attending school in Japan. She will learn a new way of living, a great deal about herself, and possibly even a new language. She will also be an ambassador, teaching people she meets about her country, culture, and ideas.
