Both outbound Youth Exchange Students sponsored by Mesa West Rotary for 2019-20 were in attendance at the July 25, 2019 meeting.  
 
Colton Cagle was part of Ed Koeneman's program on Rotary Youth Service.  When Colton finished his part of the presentation, he wanted everyone to smile for a selfie.  He knew it was likely his last meeting with Mesa West before his departure for The Netherlands in August.  
 
Paige Goetzenberger was also present at the meeting with Bryan and Donna, her proud parents and her sister Emilee who was an outbound student two years ago.  About to begin the most independent experience of her life to date, Paige is shown at Sky Harbor Friday, July 26 before her departure for Austria.  Paige was warmly welcomed when she arrived at her destination Saturday, July 27.
 
Mesa West Rotarians wish both of these young people a safe, warm, memorable growth experience of a lifetime learning as much or more about themselves as they learn about the cultures in which they will be immersed.
