A Scholarly Group - 05/22/2014 Membership Meeting

We had a lot of smart people at our meeting this morning. A rarity indeed! Gate City Rotary gives out scholarships each year to students from GTCC and this year we were able to provide help to five very deserving recipients. Three of them were able to attend our meeting today and expressed their gratitude and gave a little background on their individual stories. It all got pretty emotional and if you get choked up easily you might want to skip over the meeting video when Ashley Wigglesworth congratulated the recipients. We're proud of you Ashley! I must admit, I had to act like I had pollen in my eyes for minute or two, but it was a good thing!

We're in the home stretch on the way to the Changing of the Guard. It's hard to believe a year has gone by this quickly. Don't forget next week we are back at the Proximity! Have a safe and fun Memorial Day and give thanks to our current and former military personnel as we remember their tremendous sacrifices for our freedom.
