Rotary Club of Cheshire Scholarship and Unsung Student Awards


The Cheshire Rotary Club in partnership with Cheshire Public Schools awarded scholarships to four Cheshire High School Seniors: Meaghan Kirby, Aaron Parlier, Benjamin Saccoccio and Michelle Voong. All are being awarded for academic and community excellence. The awards presented at the club’s May 8, meeting was presided over by Rotarians Dave Schumacker and Mike Evans.

Recipients of the Rotary Club Unsung Student Awards are Sean Roach, grade 8, Dodd Middle School and Jonathan Meyers, 10th grade Cheshire High School. Both are being honored for positive attitude, hard work, class participation, initiative and kindness to others. All traits of future Rotarians.

Each year students receive the awards from each of the four elementary schools, Dodd Middle School and Cheshire High School, bringing the total number of Scholarship and Unsung Student Awards to over 210.

Rotary is a worldwide service organization. Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today’s most critical issues. Some of the Cheshire Rotary service projects include the local scholarship program, the “William E. Grove II Memorial Firefighter of the Year” award, the Cheshire Public Library Birthday Book program, the Cheshire YMCA Van, as well as contributions to many agencies including: Cheshire Food Drive, Hospice organizations, Boy Scouts of America, and Cheshire Senior Center. The Rotary Club of Cheshire is always looking for members.
