An important aspect of service is our dedication to the youth of our community and our world. The Rotary Club of Easton responds to this challenge is several ways:
Three times during the school year we recognize a “Student of the Month” from each of our local high schools (Easton, Notre Dame, Wilson, and Career Institute of Technology. A $200 scholarship is given to each.
Each year we send one or more high school rising seniors to Camp Neidig, a Rotary leadership training experience that takes place in a camp setting over a long weekend.
From time to time we participate in Rotary’s International Youth /exchange. In 2010-11 we hosted Jose Garcia, an international exchange student from Ecuador. And Marissa Cecere, daughter of past-president Lori Metz, was an outbound exchange student spending the year in Italy.
Annually in June we recognize the “B. J. Metz Young Person of the Year.” This is a student who has exhibited outstanding service to the community beyond the usual high school activities. A $1,000 grant is given.Check the sidebar on our Home page for the link to a current application form.
