The Rotary Club of Little River named two annual scholarships after the club’s co-founders during the installation of its new officers for the 2020-2021 RotaryYear. The scholarships were named for Craig Hill, Past District Governor of District 717, and Mary E. Martin, Past District Governor of District 7770, who co-founded the club on September 24th, 2002.
Vickie Harrison, President of the club for the 2019-2020 Rotary Year commented “As a club, it’s important to remember our club founders and their legacies as it is for all Rotarians to remember the legacy of Paul Harris.”
Craig was presented with an award naming the annual scholarship the “Craig J. Hill Scholarship for Leadership and Community Service” during the ceremony. Mary was unable to attend this year’s ceremony and will receive her award naming the annual scholarship the “Mary E. Martin Scholarship for Leadership and Community Service” at a future event.
The Rotary Club of Little River has contributed over $15,000 in scholarships over the past two year to young scholars in our area.
