On June 2, the Oak Lawn Rotary Club awarded five local students with rotary scholarships. Students and their families were in attendance for the ceremony at the Hilton in Oak Lawn. 

Students submitted an application where they described contributions they made to the community as well as their plans for secondary education. 

“The past is what got us all  here today. You folks are the next generation of future leaders and will weave the very fabric of this country, congratulations and best wishes” said Rotary board member Jim Weise.

Recipients included:

Brenna Donegan-Marist High School

Adam R. Smith- Oak Lawn Community High School

Eric Kraisch- Harold L. Richards High School

Carolyn Mayer-Harold L. Richards High School

Stephanie Dominguez- Moraine Valley College

Each student accepted their award and spoke about the college they are attending and the major they wish to pursue.  

Adam Smith who will be majoring in physical therapy at Saint Xavier University summed up the spirit of Rotary  when he said  “now it’s my turn to give back to the community.”
