Rotary “Ambassador” in the Middle East (Aired Mar. 25, 2011)
Ambassadorial Scholar Dr. Christine Guedri Giacalone and DGN Dr. William Bassett, Scholarship Committee Chair and District 7210 Governor for 2012-13, discuss the Ambassadorial Scholarship, which promotes international understanding and goodwill through study in country different from the scholar’s own. Dr. Giacolone describes her experiences in Jordan, both as a student learning Arabic and as a professor teaching language. Her professional background teaching language to cadets in West Point for several years, plus her initial study in Arabic here in the United States, prepared her for her work in Jordan.
