Camp Rotary kids pay a visit
Posted by Janet Martineau
One of our club's favorite annual programs is when the students we have sent to the annual leadership program at Camp Rotary speak about their experience.
This year we sent eight students to the four-day session serving 80 students in Michigan. Six of them spoke during our Sept. 23 meeting.
-- Robin Pruitt, a global studies senior at the Saginaw Arts and Sciences (SASA) who plans to attend Western Michigan University and study physical therapy.
-- Cherish Joe, in the art program at SASA who has applied to attend the University of Michigan art school as well as some foreign schools.
-- Theondre Peoples, a theater major at SASA who plans to enter law or medical school but has not yet chosen a college.
-- Ranika Pierson, a senior at Saginaw High School who wants to become a nurse practitioner and plans to attend SVSU.
-- Audreeanna Ramsey, who attends Saginaw High School and would like to become a judge. She plans to attend SVSU.
-- James Hax, a math and science student at SASA who plans to attend Michigan Tech.
The typical day found a motivational speaker in the morning, team building in the afternoon like ropes and obstacle courses, and recreation in the evening like campfires and skits.
It is our club that established, and leases for $1 a year to the Boy Scouts, the 1100 acres of Camp Rotary.
