Rotary Honors Three as November Students of the Month

 
In an in-person meeting, the Rotary Club of Everett on November 15, 2022 honored three local high school students as Rotary Students of the Month.
Each month during the school year the club recognizes outstanding high school students in the city of Everett for their accomplishments and their promise.
 
Everett High Student of the Month is Derek Olson, chosen for his academic achievements, his involvement in leadership, his participation, his commitment to making Everett High a school to be proud of, and for the kind of person he is. With his 3.9 GPA, a varsity letter in three sports and time as a student leader, Derek was selected as a Washington State University Regents Scholar nominee. One of his advanced placement teachers said “Derek is just a solidly good human in every possible way. He's the kind of young person parents hope their children become.” 
 
Cascade High Student of the Month is Cristobal Miranda, an incredibly bright young man who is genuine and kind, a hard worker and true scholar. “In one word, Cristobal is a ROCKSTAR!” said his computer science teacher. “He has the potential to go as far as he wants in the coding profession. Coding is problem solving, extrapolation, and having the mindset to accept challenges and try things you've never done before.  Cristobal thrives at all of these things. He is incredibly bright.” 
 
 
Student of the Month from Sequoia High is Laura Infante.  Laura is a beam of light around Sequoia who has grown personally and academically. She is focused on her schoolwork and excited to be graduating this month. Her son is her motivation to continue her education and she plans to pursue an elementary education pathway. She knows the sky is the limit. One staff member said Laura “portrays a good attitude and willingness to learn and shows genuine interest and kindness to others.”
 
 
 
'Twas a memorable meeting today for the Rotary Club of Everett, with Rotary District 5050 Governor Raj Rajagopal addressing our group about Rotary's focus on the environment, peace and reconciliation, and the ongoing global battle against polio. He discussed Rotary's focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), and spoke of Rotary's need to attract new and younger members by adjusting to their differing needs and motivations. He also presented a certificate honoring our Everett club for being one of six clubs (out of 1,000 clubs in Rotary Zone 28) that has given more than $1 million to the Rotary Foundation. In addition, scholarship manager Anna Marie Laurence and club treasurer Rich Toyer were honored for their hard work on behalf of Rotary. Everett Silvertips coach Dennis Williams was also recognized, and District 5050's Rotary Foundation Director, Jack Rae, spoke about the importance of the foundation.

Each week Rotarians have the opportunity to learn more about the goings on in the local, national, or international community.  You are welcome to come and join us for one of our meetings and get to know more about a group of lively folks who are dedicated to the concept of “Service Above Self”.

Rotary Boosts 58 Everett Students with $281,500 in Scholarships

 
Some 58 Everett students will gain a college head start this week as the Rotary Club of Everett presents scholarships funded by club members and donors worth an unprecedented $281,500.
 
The total includes a new scholarship for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) studies, funded by Fluke Corporation, and another in general studies funded by Leavitt Group Northwest.
Scholarship winners will be recognized in an in-person celebration at 6:30 p.m. May 17 at the Everett Civic Auditorium. Their individual grants range from $500 to $25,000.
 
“Members of the Everett Rotary Club and our community partners believe that education powers progress,” said Greg Lineberry, Rotary president.  “In a world faced with so many challenges and uncertainties, our club was humbled by the achievements and aspirations of our award recipients, and we are happy to support them as they advance their knowledge and skills.”
Rotarians in Everett work closely with school counselors to identify scholarship prospects. Those nominees are then interviewed by Rotary members, who make the final selection. In total, the club has awarded more than $5 million in scholarships.
 
“What the Everett Rotary does every year for our students is incredible,” said superintendent Ian Saltzman of the Everett School District. “These 58 students have worked hard throughout high school and are ready for their next educational opportunities. Having some financial assistance always makes the path a bit easier! My heartfelt gratitude to the Rotary for all their support.”
 
Supporting youth is a major focus for the Rotary Club of Everett. Club members share their business experiences with students participating in the school district’s AVID (Achievement Via Individual Determination) program. The club also participates in student exchange programs by sending local students overseas and hosting students from other countries.

"The Rotary Club of Everett is the pre-eminent professional service club, known for its core values, support of youth education, and for successfully identifying and addressing community and international issues."
Not all students just starting college are really ready for the experience.  What are some of the things that members of the community can do when interacting with the young people to help them be better prepared?  That was the subject of Dr Chris Geyer’s presentation to the Rotary Club of Everett recently.
Based on her 14 years of classroom teaching working with incoming college students, she shared her top five suggestions.  These were:
Foster Inquiry
Conversation
Reading
Chess
Right Reasons
 
Five years of work and eight visits by Rotary Club of Everett members will soon yield crops for needy farmers in the Dajabón region of the Dominican Republic.
 
The harvest: grants totaling nearly $107,000 from the Rotary Foundation, Everett-area Rotary clubs, Rotary District 5050 and more to help low-income Dominicans build greenhouse gardens where they will raise vegetables to eat and sell.
