| As you remember, Sonia Azad, Channel 13 reporter & Rotary GSE team member, developed and broadcast her "GSE Team Trip to India" special report several months ago. Great publicity for Rotary throughout the Greater Houston Area & around the world. We are thrilled to report that last night, Sonia was given a Regional Emmy Award for her half-hour special report.
In this half-hour special program, Sonia Azad highlights parts of her
month-long trip to Kerala and Tamil Nadu in South India. There were some of the
good-will projects Rotary is involved with on the ground there-- and heard first
hand from the GSE team about what it's like to live with Indian families.
You also heard from Indian doctors who lived in Houston for a month as part
of the Rotary's GSE program. What they experienced and what they are taking
back with them that could be life-changing for the future of medical care in
is Sonia's first Emmy nomination and award. We am thrilled that a panel
of judges and media critics saw the value in the story as much as Sonia
did, and still does.
Sonia wants to thank Rotary & Bill
Davis for being part of the story... for sending her to India with such
an amazing team-- Jagdip, Atif, Christy and Victorina, from whom she
says she continues to learn... and for agreeing to do interviews and
help her to get this story out for the public.
thanks all the Rotarians who made this story possible, especially those
from the Humble club who helped coordinate her interviews with visiting
GSE members from India.
Great Job, Sania, Congratulations!!!!
