Retired LTCC president to lead Rotary exchange trip to Brazil
Guy Lease will lead a Rotary Group Study Exchange (GSE) to Brazil this month.
Lease, who retired as Lake Tahoe Community College president last year but still holds the post unofficially until the college hires his replacement, will leave April 10 with four other people, including Allie Wenzl with the Tallac Historic Site.
GSE allows young professionals ages 25 to 45 to experience their occupations in another country, Lease said.
Lease is the GSE team leader from the South Lake Tahoe Rotary Club and will lead the group. Other professionals will examine how their vocations operate in Brazil. Wenzl, for example, will examine historical preservation methods, Lease said.
To prepare for the trip, Lease has been studying Portuguese, Brazil’s native language, and he’s packing a translation dictionary, just in case.
