News from Kayla Stovall - Rotary Global Scholar
District 5930 Rotary Global Scholar Kayla Stovall


Our District 5930 Rotary Global Scholar sent a terrific report on her continuing adventures. 

Hello District 5930 Rotarians,


I just wanted to share this email with you all and let you know that your Rotary 5930 influence has traveled to the Scottish/English borders to  Rotary Club of Kirkcudbright. This is a small Scottish town with a population 3,500 and 51 active Rotarians. It was my first Rotary presentation as a Global Scholar. The Rotarian, Mike Dugid, and his wife Pat hosted  another scholar and I in their home as we traveled an hour train ride from Edinburgh to share our Rotary story. It was a wonderful experience and I will share more about it in my next blog. 


P.S. I will have a club flag for you all when I get back to the states in September.


Sincerely ,

Kayla Stovall


Her host had some very kind words for her after her presentation:


Hi Kayla,

    I hope you made it back to Edinburgh OK.  It was a joy to host you and Carlyn and thank you for a wonderful, inspiring, talk last night. One Rotarian came up to me afterwards and said that your talk would undoubtedly have a major impact on one member of the club whose enthusiasm for Rotary was beginning to fade.  For that alone my thanks.


I found your blog online and saw you striding across the Edinburgh streets. A great way to keep the folks back home updated on your time in Scotland.


John Frew, our club’s RYLA organizer whom you met last night, has email the District coordinator to emphasize the fact that you would be willing to act as a mentors. 


Fond regards, Mike
