Mechanicsburg Rotary students for the month of January were introduced on January 29 and were interviewed by Jolene George. They have been with us all month, but their planned formal introduction on January 8 was canceled for weather.

The Rotary Club invites students from six schools to attend club meetings for a month during the school year. Each month a new group of students is  invited. At the end of the school year, the club awards $2,000 scholarships to a student from each school based on an application which they submit and the interactions that occur at the meetings. Students who continue their education in Pennsylvania also have an opportunity to receive a $2,000 matching grant from PHEAA (Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency) based on need. We were excited to have this group of students join us for the month of January.
