Olivier Brackett is Airport Manager at McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad. Jessica Turner is an Administrative Analyst and is responsible for Customer Relations. The airport was named McClellan-Palomar for Gerald McClellan, a North County community leader. The history goes back to 1957, when the San Diego County picked the Carlsbad site. The airport opened for daytime operations in 1959, with terminal building and expansion to a 4,700 ft. runway within a couple of years. In 1978 the airport was annexed to the City of Carlsbad.

Dr. Burkholder is a former Special Agent (SA) that worked for the Department of Homeland Security with the United States Secret Service for nine years. From her small frame and 5’7” stature you would never have thought that this amazing woman once had duties that included protection details for the President, Vice-President and many foreign dignitaries.

The program was started off by Joe Ramirez explaining the Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) program which was started in 1929 as a way for Rotary International to increase its focus on youth. The purpose is to expose these young people to other cultures, to have them act as an ambassador of their home country and to grow personally. He reminded us that his Son was an RYE student that we sponsored about 5 years ago to go to Ecuador and that is how Joe became a member of our club. Our club has sponsored RYE students for years and he wanted to thank the membership for being a host club and to thank those that have served as host families.
