Brownwood Rotary Helps Prepare Leaders of the Future

 

The Brownwood Rotary Club cares about local area students and works with our community to help build the leaders of tomorrow.

 

The Brownwood Rotary Club cares about local area students.  We demonstrate this in three key ways:

  1.  Providing dictionaries to every third grade student in Brown County.  Distribution of the dictionaries usually takes place in the fall.  Rotarians coordinate with the school to personally deliver the dictionaries to each third grade classroom.

  2. The annual awarding of scholarships to Brownwood High or Early High School Seniors who have been recommended by their High School Counselor to compete as a Rotary Student of the Month. One student a month visits the club with her or his family.  The student presents on his or her accomplishments and talks to the club about their plans for the future. 

  3. Funding a RYLA (Rotary Youth Leader Award) Scholarship.  Each spring the Brownwood Rotary Club receives recommendations from high school counselors for the RLYA scholarship and invites those students recommended to apply.  Rotarians conduct interviews and the scholarship winner is presented an opportunity to attend the RYLA Conference held each Summer in Denton.  These students receive hands-on learning and leadership experiences along with a great opportunity to expand their horizons and meet new friends.  Watch the video below to learn more.  The 2011 RYLA selection was James Crow.
