Rotary Club was happy to provide chicken, baked beans, cole slaw, fruit and desserts to the homeless and residents of the Northwest Quadrant of Beaufort.  This is a quarterly service project that we truly enjoy being a part of.  Many people show up for food and fellowship where we start the evening all standing in a circle with prayer before the meal is served.

The Georgetown Lunch Rotary Club recently announced its scholarship winners for 2014-15.  This year’s scholarship recipients were:  Tiffany McCray (Georgetown High School), Spencer Owens (Carver Bay High School), and Taylor Mercer (Mike Rogers Memorial Scholarship).

Kent Vanier, Chairman of the Georgetown Rotary Club’s Scholarship Committee, said the selection process for the scholarship recipients is never easy, but this year’s awards went to some very deserving Georgetown students.  Vanier said the $1,000 scholarships are awarded to senior students from Georgetown and Carvers Bay High schools.  The criteria used in the initial selection process include academic achievement, extracurricular activities, community activities, written description of future personal, educational and professional plans, and a financial needs form.  The schools’ guidance counselors assist in the screening process and the Club Scholarship Committee makes the final decision.

The Mike Rogers Memorial Scholarship was established by the Rogers family to honor Mike Rogers, a sports reporter for the Georgetown Times.  The $500 scholarship is given to a deserving student with an athletic or band background who meet the other criteria for the award.
