Rio Vista Rotary hosts exchange student reunion

By From page A9 | August 18, 2014

RIO VISTA — Two Rio Vista Rotary Club exchange students from India returned to Rio Vista on Aug. 9 to visit their host family from 46 years ago.

Sham Goyal and Gajendra Singh, accompanied by Singh’s wife Vimla, visited Hank and Judy Tussy. Both exchange students went on to earn their doctorates in agriculture-related fields, with Goyal teaching at the University of California, Davis and Singh at the Asian Institute of Technology in Bangkok. They are now retired, with Singh a consultant to the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, according to a Rotary Club press release.

Goyal and Singh stayed with the Tussys when Hank Tussy was president of the Rio Vista Rotary Club in 1968. They kept in touch and sent Christmas greetings every year, the press release said.
