Sharon Nelson, office administrator for the Executive MBA program, will go to Italy this summer as part of a group-study exchange program for young professionals sponsored by the Rotary Foundation.
During their four weeks in Italy, the four participants and their team leader will visit universities, meet others in their field, and observe the practice of their profession abroad. Wherever possible, they will stay in private homes.
Their hosts will be Rotary District 2080 in Italy, which is paired with their sponsors, Rotary District 7040. They will give presentations while in Italy and later to the Rotarians when they return.
Sharon applied at the suggestion of Professor David Franklin, who teaches in the EMBA program. Nelson has been in her current position for three-and-a-half years.
During that time, she has obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and is now working on a Bachelor's in Civil Engineering. She has been a secretary on the Board of the Black Theatre Workshop, and was president of the Concordia Caribbean Students' Union in 1994-95.
