Congratulations to Douglas Bodden-Brooks (center), a John Jay High School senior, who was awarded a Joan Sourenian Scholarship for $500 to be used to further his education this fall. His proud mom stands to his right and Steve Quesnel, Fishkill Rotary Treasurer, stands to Doug's left. Douglas addressed the Fishkill Rotarians on Wednesday morning, July 20, and emphasized how important being a member of the John Jay Interact Club proved to be for him during his high school career. We all join in wishing Doug well as he takes the next step in his education!
Congratulations to Aaron Tracey, a John Jay High School graduate who was named a Sourenian Scholarship winner by the Rotary Club of Fishkill. Doug receives his check (left) from Rotary Club Treasurer, Steve Quesnal at the meeting on July 27. Aaron will use the scholarship money to help pay for textbooks as he pursues his college education. Aaron attended the meeting with his dad, and Fishkill Rotary wishes Aaron well as he pursues his educational goals.
Two of the students Fishkill Rotary sponsored at this year's RYLA Conference were guests at the July 13th meeting to discuss their experiences. Sarah MacEntee (left) and Dannen Quesnel spoke of the team-building activities that were offered and all of the friendships they made during their RYLA experience. Both agreed that RYLA was a "life-changing experience", and
both girls expressed their gratitude to Fishkill Rotary for the opportunity to attend the conference.
Fishkill Rotary is very proud to sponsor a Rotary Exchange student, Anna Zerrella (left), from Italy. Anna will be spending the next few months with Fishkill Rotary families as she learns more about America and attends John Jay High School in East Fishkill. On the right is Dilynn Kessler, Fishkill Rotary's Exchange representative, who will be in Italy during the same period of time attending an Italian school and learning about the culture and history of Italy. Good luck to both of these wonderful students as they truly expand their horizons as part of Rotary Exchange.
