PDG Herb Jerry remembered

Youth Exchange remembered PDG Herb Jerry at the Welcome Home Dinner on August 3, 2016.  Chair Tom Taylor said:  “Tonight we take a moment to remember the life of our good friend, Herb Jerry.  Most of you may not have met Herb, or know much about him.  Yet without Herb, you may not have enjoyed the experiences you had as an exchange student.  Herb was a vital part of Youth Exchange, supporting the Program when he was District Governor, and then serving as a mentor to many of us, including myself, who serve on the Youth Exchange Committee.  Herb truly believed in our young people and in the power of young people to make a difference–one person at a time–as ambassadors for Rotary and our country.  He would be so proud of each of you returning students for what you have accomplished.  Herb will be missed, but we rededicate ourselves tonight, in his memory, to making our Youth Exchange Program second to none.  Please take a moment with me now, in silence, to remember Herb.
