North High School, Akron, OH 
Akron North High School looks forward to our induction to the District Conference of Clubs later in April.  Also, we are proud to announce our first Rotary 4 Way Speech Contest winner, Ro Zi Mar. She resettled in North Hill from Thailand, specifically the Mae La refugee camp, with her family ten years ago. After Ro Zi’s first place win at The North High School contest, she won the first round at districts and then secured an honorable mention in the finals. We would like to extend our warmest congratulations, and look forward to what Ro Zi will bring to the competition next year! In addition to the speech contest, North’s Rotary Interact has been busy putting together care bags for our students in need. With the help of the Akron Rotary and the HPAC club at North, we were able to make and distribute over 100 care packages to our underprivileged students.
