Boots Raber is presenting Clara Dubbs a copy of the recent 40-Year History of Kansas-Paraguay Partners. Boots along with Merrill Raber complied the history. Clara is a long time member and supporter of KPP. She was a very generous contributor to the history project.
Clara was also a leader in the International 4-H Youth (IFYE) and Professional Rural Youth Leader Exchange (PRYLE) from 1978 through 1992. Along with our southern partners exchanges occurred each year between youth of Kansas and Paraguay. Some of the Paraguayan youth went on to study at Fort Hays State University and Kansas State University. In 2005 KPP and CPK sponsored a tour of Paraguay and Clara was sought out by many people who fondly remembered their time in Kansas.
Clara will turn 90 years old next month.
