Henriette “Jette” Wenzl, center, a Rotary Youth Exchange student from Germany, is welcomed to a recent Kingston Rotary Club meeting by Rotary International District 6780 Outbound Youth Exchange Chairman Bill Nichols and Kingston Rotary Club President Suzanne Horsfall.

Wenzl, a student at Webb School of Knoxville, spoke to the club about her home country, her family and her initial impressions about the East Tennessee area.

She is following a family tradition — her two older sisters have also been Rotary Youth Exchange students in the United States.

Wenzl said she is enjoying staying with her host family in Knoxville and making new friends

And she has discovered that she loves being on the field hockey team and in chorus at Webb, along with water sports on Watts Bar Lake in Roane County on the weekends when she visits her host grandparents, Starl and JoAnn Moore.
