Every year our club hopes to sponsor a Global Scholar through a Global Grant.   We rely on Clarence Miller to help us find that student from his position at Rice University.   Clarence indeed brought us a young man to consider.  Simulataneously we received a referral of a young woman at Baylor College of Medicine. What a wonderful dilemma. After Clarence, George Adams and I met with both scholars we made our choice. It was not easy. What made it possible at all was knowing that whomever we did not choose would have a sponsor in the Humble Club.  
 
So we have chosen Tim Tianbo Wang, a biochemistry major at Rice who plans to become a dentist and work on public policy as it relates to oral health.  If your oral health is poor, you don't eat a good diet.  If you don't eat right, you get weak or sick.  If you are sick you cannot work, if you can't work you can't support your family, etc. etc.   
 
The Baylor student, Annum, will be sponsored by Bill Davis's Humble Rotary Club.  She plans to devote her career to helping communities organize and push for better access to health care from their leaders. We will be pulling for her as well to be a grant recipient along with our nominee.
 
Sitting down with George after a day of interviewing the two scholars, he reflected that it was a good day.   A day that makes you happy to be a Rotarian because of what we do, and happy to be President-elect and in a position to meet these future leaders.  Rotary offers the same opportunities to all members to meet and affect people in a big way.  Find your passion so being a Rotarian is rewarding for you.
