Last night I attended one of my very favorite Rotary functions. Each year the Maquoketa Rotary hosts the graduating seniors scholarship dinner. The top 20 students are invited along with their parents to honor their achievements. I am always impressed with the quality of individuals who are selected. It says volumes about the Maquoketa School System, the teachers, and Dr. Kim Huckstead.
Rotarians introduce the students and talk about a list of their accomplishments. The students fill out a short bio of themselves as well. The thing that always impresses me is how much credit each student gives to their parents involvement and support in their life.
There was one family there who had 4 previous children all whom attended previous scholarship dinners. It is a clear fact just how much difference parents make in the lives of their children. If you have any doubt about the future generation be less troubled. There are a lot of great young people who still have strong values and a desire to make a difference. I saw 20 of them last night.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and be careful.
