It gives me great pleasure to present Ellen Johnson as the team leader for the 2019 GSE exchange with District 2490, Israel. Ellen is a member of the Rogue Gateway Rotary Club in Grants Pass. Her passion in Rotary is World Community Service and she has participated in a service project in Guatemala. She has a long list of service and community accomplishments here in District 5110.
Last weekend, the 9th annual Big West Rotaract conference was held in Portland. Big West Rotaract, or BWR, is an MDIO that brings together Rotaractors and Rotarians from across the west coast of the US and Canada (from Alaska to California to Arizona) to share ideas, grow inspiration, and train the future leaders of our society. Each year, BWR puts on two big events: Institute, which includes a PETS track for incoming club presidents, and Conference, which occurs each October in a different part of the region. Rotaractors across District 5100 and 5110 have been looking forward to having the conference in our neck of the woods for months!

One of Rotary’s six areas of focus—economic and community development—is the cornerstone of our club’s signature project, Let’s Leave No Girl Behind. In partnership with Adopt-A-Village Guatemala, Through funding from a District matching grant and our Club Foundation, the project continues to provide indigenous young women in remote rural Guatemala a chance to overcome poverty and unemployment through education and skills training.
For next school year, two Mayan girls, Isabel Ramirez and Elena Perez, have been awarded full scholarships at the Maya Jaguar Center for Education and Development where they will study academic, sustainable agriculture and nutrition, and computer technology this coming year. This comprehensive education prepares students to become leaders in their communities and opens doors to employment.
STUDENT OF THE MONTH CONNECTS CLUBS TO COMMUNITIES
By Louise Vintonne McNeil
The Rotary Club of Scott Valley has a long standing relationship with the Junior High School and each month students are honored as “Students of the Month.” They are chosen by the teachers not necessarily for academic grades, but on the basis of honesty, kindness, effort with other students and cooperation with their peers and teachers. The honorees are treated to breakfast, give a small speech at our Rotary meeting and their picture in the local newspaper.
