7th and 8th Grade Student Awards
Submitted by Cameron Troxell
Last Friday our club welcomed 66 students, parents, and administrators from four local schools, as the Rick Whyte Youth Service Awards were handed out to
deserving 7th and 8th graders. The awards are based on the recommendation of teachers and administration for students at El Roble Intermediate School, Our Lady of the Assumption School, Foothill Country Day School, and Western Christian Middle School. The basis of the recommendation is a 10-point assessment established by Rotary. The honorees this year are listed below.

Kudos to first-time Youth Awards Chair Mark Carson, whose diligent preparation over the preceding months ensured a smooth ceremony. Thanks as well to all of the club members whose efforts provided vital assistance.
