Each year the Langhorne Rotary awards scholarships to senior high school students from the community who are chosen from submitted applications by a Rotary committee.
The criteria focuses on service in the community.
These scholarships are named after the late T. Walter Styer, who left a donation to provide the funds.
At the Rotary meeting on August 16th, parents were present to see Caitlyn Albarran and Danielle LaPierre from Neshaminy High School, and Owen Sienko from Holy Cross Proprietary School receive $1500 checks and certificates.
Mathew Tomlin from the Bucks County Technical High School was recognized, with his mother present, on August 23rd.
The Rotary theme for the 2018-2019 year is “Be the Inspiration.” As a way to celebrate this motto the Langhorne Rotary will choose a person in the community each month and present a “Service Above Self Community Award” certificate at a meeting.
On August 22nd, the Langhorne Rotary recognized their first recipient, Ms. Suzi Drake.
Suzi was recognized for her many years of inspiration for the Interact Club (the high school branch of Rotary), as a teacher at Neshaminy High School, and in the community.
As two students stated “she leads by example and is passionate in her teaching as well as in her service.”
Langhorne Rotary welcomes members of the community to submit nominations for the Service Above Self Community Award to Board@langhornerotary.org.
