Areas of Focus: Basic education and literacy, Community economic development
Summary: Provide a scholarship to a graduating senior from a Mat-Su Borough High School.
This scholarship is in honor of Rotarian Pam Hill who passed away in 2021. Pam came from humble beginnings and through grit and determination became a OBGYN Physician, served in the US Army, and worked to improve her community and the world. There are students in our community who because of their family situation have struggled with school, have exhibited the grit and determination to complete high school and has shown steady progress and improvement in their grades throughout their high school career. Many of our club members know students who fall into this category, in addition we have a high school principal and teacher in our club that can assist with attracting the kind of student we desire to compete for this scholarship.
This project is "Paid". This means that the funds from the district have been issued. This project is now being ready for implementation. When this is done, a report needs to be uploaded on the project page and the "Reported" button needs to be clicked, then the status of the project will be changed to "Reported".
