Rotary Youth Exchange Student Sergio Neto, from Londrina, Brazil received a warm welcome from Medina Sunrise Rotary this morning. "I am truly excited to begin my Exchange Year as a Senior at Medina High School and learn more about American culture," said Sergio. "My Host Parents, David and Beth Vogelgesang, are the best! They helped me register for my classes at the high school and have taken me to the DCI Drum & Bugle Corps International Competition at First Energy Stadium, as part of the NFL Hall of Fame Celebration. I already love it here in America and am grateful to Rotary for providing me with this opportunity of a lifetime."
