    Rotary Club of Shady Brook recognizes ‘Students of the Month’

    The Rotary Club of Shady Brook recently recognized two Maple Point Middle School students, Matteo Sinagoga and Colette Schardt, as its “Students of the Month” for December and January.

    With their parents watching, both students were presented with a Certificate of Recognition and a $100 scholarship award by program chair Dr. Augie Adrid, and club president Ira Sherman. 

    Both Matteo and Colette then thanked the club and shared some comments about their current school and community activities as well as their ambitions for the future.

    Joining the students and their parents was their guidance counselor, Rosemary Orsely, who shared with the club how the school selects deserving students for thier scholarships.

    She stressed the importance of nominating students who not only are strong academic performers, but also students who have successfully faced obstacles in their personal lives and who routinely serve others and volunteer their time.
