Jessica Unruh to visit South Korea

Jessica Unruh, visual communications expert at FASTSIGNS of Durango, recently was selected as one of three young professionals to represent Colorado during a Rotary Club-sponsored Group Study Exchange in South Korea.

Unruh, two other exchange participants and the group leader will spend a month in South Korea beginning March 22. While there, the group will live with various host families, experiencing the culture and the history in each city they visit. The participants also will take part in a shadow program to learn how their vocations are practiced in the host country, cultivate personal and professional relationships and exchange ideas.

The study exchange is being sponsored by Rotary District 5470 in Colorado, Rotary District 5370 in The Republic of Korea and the GSE program of the Rotary Foundation. One of the requirements to apply for the program was for the applicant to have the ability to leave his or her job for a month while they participate.
