Letter: Nominate a student

Every day students in our county have opportunities around them to serve others. Sometimes the task is huge, sometimes the task is small, and sometimes the takes needs the help of an entire group. School personnel, family, and friends of students kindergarten to high school can nominate individuals and groups for Service Above Self.

The Rowan Rotary Club, United Way, Cheerwine and Catawba College sponsor our local Rowan Service Above Self Annual Recognition Program. This year the special event will be Nov. 29 at Catawba College.

This year Rowan Service Above Self is proud to welcome scholarships to Catawba College for the High School and Middle School winners. Catawba College will provide $60,000 worth of scholarships.

• $5,000 scholarship for four years to the No. 1 high school winner

• $3,000 scholarship for four years to the No. 2 high school winner

• $2,000 scholarship for four years to the No. 3 high school winner

• $5,000 scholarship for four years to the No. 1 middle school winner

We have come a long way in 23 years and the Catawba College scholarships are certainly a giant step as we continue to recognize students and offer them an opportunity to continue their education.

As a member of the Rowan Service Above Self Committee, follow my lead and nominate — don’t wait. Nominations are due by Nov. 9.

Nominations are accepted for students that volunteer in our community, schools, and churches. Helping others is the main goal of the nominee. These students make a habit to serve others. The time frame of the service to others is Aug. 1, 2017–Oct. 31, 2018.

Come help us celebrate the youth of Rowan County. To nominate go to rowanserviceaboveself.com.
