1. Counselors for inbound ambassadorial scholars.
because of the university’s location (AS well AS that of westminster choir college) in the princeton area Princeton rotary is often called upon to provide counselors and the club is asked to include the scholars in its activities. This is not a club project as such. counselors are asked to serve by the district ambassadorial scholarship committee. counselors from other clubs also serve and scholars often attend other universities in our district.
