Serving Monroe, Sultan and the Sky Valley Region

 

Student of the Month Program

 
 
 
 
 
The Rotary Club of Monroe is proud to announce that we are preparing for our annual Student of the Month program. For the past several years we have partnered with both Monroe and Sultan High schools and been fortunate to provide numerous students with a $1000 academic scholarship to the school of their choice.  Last year alone, we awarded scholarships totaling $7000 to Monroe and $3000 to Sultan High School Students and are very pleased to announce that we anticipate providing the same level of support this year if not more.
 
Key points about the Student of the Month Program:
  • Every Monroe and Sultan high school senior is given the opportunity to fill out the Monroe Rotary Scholarship Application.  The SOM committee reviews the applications and while we’re looking for a well-rounded student, we’re looking for a very heavy emphasis on community service/involvement. 
  • Each application will be reviewed by the Student of the Month (SOM) Committee. The SOM committee will select approximately 25 students from each school to interview and spend a full day in January at each high school.
  • The interview process includes a series of questions on a variety of topics including: academic, leadership, community service, future plans, peer pressure, extracurricular, etc.  The interviews are scored and from those, we chose our Top 12 from Monroe and generally, Top 8 from Sultan (it’s a much smaller class size) and they become our Students of the Month.  The selected students are invited to one of three Rotary luncheons – one each in January, March and May.  Each of the luncheons are specifically focused on the Students of the Month and provides each o them with an opportunity to speak about their future plans, favorite community service project, etc.
  • One of the requirements of our students is to complete a community service project, which in all past years has been a food drive.  They have some guidance from the SOM committee, but the food drive is theirs to plan and execute.  The year over year results are mind-blowing – a couple of thousand in cash and several thousand pounds of food.  During the food drive, the students are being scored on participation, involvement, leadership, attendance in meetings, etc.  We take their interview scores along with their food drive scores and choose our scholarship recipients – each receiving a $1000 scholarship to the school of their choice.
 
We are very excited to have the opportunity to work so closely with our schools and provide the most deserving students with this scholarship opportunity. For additional information please contact the Student of the Month Committee chair, Sally Petty @ SPETT2@amfam.com.

Rotary AIDS day event turns spotlight on world’s deadliest infectious disease
The recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the worst ever, has claimed several thousand lives and generated worldwide concern. But its impact pales in comparison to that of AIDS, which, despite advances in treatment, still kills more than a million people a year, the majority of them in Africa. "Even with the Ebola outbreak at its worst expected levels, it's never going to reach what we've seen with the HIV/AIDS epidemic," said Dr. Timothy B. Erickson, director of the Center for Global Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, speaking at Rotary's World AIDS Day event in Evanston on 1...
Statement by Rotary International on the deadly school attack in Pakistan
Rotary International condemns the horrific attack that killed more than 130 schoolchildren and wounded over 100 of their classmates in Peshawar, Pakistan. We believe that children everywhere have the basic right to receive an education in an environment unthreatened by violence or fear. Rotary extends our heartfelt sympathy to all of the families in Pakistan, including those of seven Rotary members, who have lost children as a result of this unfathomable tragedy. We stand with them in mourning their loss. Gary C.K. Huang, PresidentRotary International
Indoor air pollution linked to millions of deaths
After decades dreaming about the Himalayas, Rotary member George Basch went on his first trek through the mountains in 2001, when he was 64. A member of the Rotary Club of Taos-Melagro in New Mexico, USA, Basch found that the experience was even more than he had hoped. "My expectations were high, and dramatically exceeded," he remembers. But a less-than-pleasant aspect of the experience was the indoor smoke pollution he encountered in the guest houses and private homes he visited. Many families in the Himalayas use rudimentary cookstoves or, in some cases, an open fire pit inside the home to...
