Rotary exchange students (including Isa Nuñoz from the Akron Club and others from District 6630) participated in a session at the Ohio Foreign Language Association Annual Meeting in Cleveland where more than 500 world language teachers gathered from all over Ohio.  The subject of the session was to inform teachers about the value and benefits of the Rotary study abroad scholarship so they can spread the word to would-be candidates. A year abroad is a life-changing event!  Rotary offers study abroad scholarships valued at about $25,000 each to students between the ages of 15 and18 ½.   For more information, go  to www.ohioerie.org
On April 4th, Akron Rotary and North High School held a service project day.
Four Rotarians -Wanda Whipkey, John Palmer, Vincent Munnerlyn, and me, worked with 10-12 North High students to put together personal grooming kits for 115 needy students.
It was a blast.
The kids were very helpful and our assembly line approach moved everything along to a successful conclusion.
Dentist John Palmer
Vincent Munnerlyn - While packing deodorant he reminded everyone
"Now make sure you use your deodorant!” 😊
Wanda Whipkey - It all starts with Wanda!
