Agustin Benegas, Quality Coordinator for Lake ChelanCommunityHospital, has been selected by Rotary District 5060 to participate in a Group Study Exchange Program sending him to South America this spring.
District 5060 is an international district of 60 clubs with nearly 3000 Rotarians in Central Washington and central British Columbia.
The Rotary Group Study Exchange program is a cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for businesspeople and professionals between the ages of 25 and 40 who are in the early stages of their careers.
Les Cooper, President of the Chelan Rotary Club, says for five weeks, Agustin will experience the culture and institutions, observe how vocations are practiced abroad and develop personal and professional relationships.
Cooper says individuals chosen to be a part of the team have their work cut out for them and have defined duties once they arrive in the host country and again when they return home.
Agustin will leave for his five week adventure in Brazil in late March.
