ROTARY CLUB OF DELAND’S 2017 ROTARY ACHIEVERS
 
The Rotary Club of DeLand honored the sixty-one winners of its 2017 Rotary Achiever Awards at the May 18th  luncheon at Wayne G. Sanborn Activity Center.  Rotary Achiever Project Chair Morgan Gilreath praised the winners for their significant accomplishments as well as their leadership potential.
Rotary Achiever Awards are given annually to West Volusia elementary school students in the fourth and fifth grades who have exhibited the greatest increase in academic achievement during the school year, based on standardized reading tests.   The main goal of the Rotary Achiever Program is to instill the concept of rewards received for effort expended.
 
 
Since 1997, the Rotary Club of DeLand has given out 987 Rotary Achiever Awards and invested over $127,000 in this program.
