Rotary and Conscious Choice Success Story

Ten years ago, Barbara Harris spoke to our Rotary about her desire to become a nurse. Her mother and sister both had not graduated from high school. She could not afford UMSL so Rotary provided her with a scholarship to Forest Park Community College. When she finished there, she went to Prairie View College in Texas and lived with her aunt. She returned to UMSL two years ago and has now graduated! She is a Conscious Choice girl and the Rotarians helped her become a successful graduate and now a nurse!  Rotary is helping young people succeed!

A small but determined group of Rotarians led by our President, Travis Liebig, gathered at John Burroughs School October 11th to package meals as a part of St. Louis World Food Day.  Backed by a generous donation from our Charitable Giving committee, our club not only made a financial impact to the outcome of the event, but also were able to get our "hands on" in the process.  All told, the event spearheaded by a JBS senior resulted in over 300,000 meals to be sent  to famine-affected areas of Africa.
