Retired Carson High School teacher recognized by CG Rotary

CHINA GROVE — Recently retired J. C. Carson High School teacher, Melanie Miller, was recognized this week by The China Grove Rotary Club with the award of a Paul Harris Fellowship.

Miller spent extra time during the final five years of her service to the School System advising Carson’s Rotary Interact Program students. Her students have excelled and increased their collective service to other youth and to the community in large part due to her leadership and example.

The Paul Harris Fellow Award, named for Rotary International founder Paul Harris is awarded in recognition and appreciation for a substantial contribution — either in money or service – to humanitarian and educational programs.

While announcing the award, Past Rotary District 7680 Governor Jim Morton said “Melanie has been designated to receive this recognition as a special expression of appreciation from China Grove Rotarians for her years of exemplary service as Faculty Adviser to the J. .C. Carson High School Interact Club. A world of peace and good will comes closer to reality tonight as Melanie becomes a Paul Harris Fellow. It is because of service like hers that Rotary and Interact is able to carry out an array of programs that achieve beneficial changes in our world.”

Morton was assisted in the presentation by Club President Frank Jones and Club Foundation Chair Larry Brown.

One of Miller’s students, Olivia Weatherby, 2019 Graduate of Carson High was present and gave a presentation on her recent experience at Rotary’s Seminar For Tomorrow’s Leaders at Wingate University. Weatherby has enrolled at UNC Charlotte in the Nursing Program. Also visiting the club meeting was newly selected Principal of China Grove Middle School, Dr. Amanda Macon.

China Grove Rotary Club was originally sponsored by The Concord Rotary Club in 1936 and meets at Gary’s Bar B Q on Tuesdays at 5:30. Visitors are always welcome. J. C. Carson High School.
