Holley Rotary presents 5 scholarships, including a new ‘Service Above Self Award’
HOLLEY – The Holley Rotary Club has awarded five scholarship to graduating seniors, including a new Jessica Mandigo Service Above Self Award.
While a student at Holley, Jessica attended a Rotary-sponsored youth leadership camp. She returned from that weekend inspired to start an Interact Club, which she did. Jessica is now a Rotarian.
Each year a new honoree will be selected and their name engraved on the plaque that bears her name. It will be displayed at the high school. The awardee will also receive a $250 scholarship.
Kohl Morgan is the first to receive this new honor. Kohl has been an active member of our Interact Club and is always there to assist. He’s the first to step up and lend a hand, without prompting. His presence is nearly a given at community events and volunteer opportunities. Where you find Kohl, you find laughs and you find his peers drawn to him. He’s a natural leader.
The Holley Rotary Club also awarded four $500 scholarships for graduating seniors. They are Morgan Cary, Megan Harrington, Olivia Radford and Tyler Jones.
Morgan Cary was a Class Officer, Editor of the Yearbook, played 2 sports, and was an active Interact Club member. She will be going to GCC next year.
Megan Harrington was extremely active in Interact and has been from the beginning. She is an officer this year and worked very hard at planning the Day of Caring. She has helped with many Rotary dinners, participated in Slapshot, and also went to Canada last year with Rotary to talk about Interact Club. Megan is going to Ohio State University next year.
Olivia Radford was active with Interact during her 8th-10th grade years. She is a very active girl overall as a 3-sport athlete, National Honor Society member, and a volunteer with the Salvation Army, Hamlin animal shelter, Catholic Charities as well as a local food bank. She is going to St. John Fisher next year for nursing.
Tyler Jones recently joined the Interact Club and has been a very active member. For the Day of Caring he and his mom worked to drop off a ton of donations. He is always asking how he can help, what he missed at a meeting, or what is coming up. He will be going to SUNY Brockport next year to major in Political Science.
